Fuad Rashid

Beats Covered:
Local or Foreign:

Security forces arrested Rashid, editor-in-chief of Mukalla Press, during a raid in ‎Al-Mukalla in the province of Hadhramaut, the news site reported. Authorities did not disclose the basis for the detention.

The site had ‎regularly covered clashes between security forces and disaffected residents of the south of the country. The Sana’a-based government sought throughout the year to restrict coverage of tensions in the south, where demonstrators protested policies they saw as marginalizing the region and denying it public services.
