Ould Hussein, an announcer at Radio Sahara, was reportedly abducted from her home in September 1979. Although it is unclear who is holding her, Amnesty International reports that plainclothes police came to search her house shortly before she was taken. While 300 Sahrawis reportedly were released after a pardon from Morocco’s King Hassan II in June 1991, CPJ has been unable to obtain information about Hussein’s current status.
