#EndImpunity IFJ demands Yemeni authorities investigate killings of journalists

In letters adressed to Yemeni Prime Minister Maeen Abdulmalik Saeed and Ansar Allah Leader Mr. Abdul-Malik al-Houthi on November 11, the International Federation of Journalists (IFJ) has urged the authorities to dispel the impression of indifference in the face of deadly assaults against journalists. The authorities need to take action against the state of deterioration of press freedom in Yemen and need to promptly act to ensure the safety and security of our colleagues reporting on the ground.
