The United Nations has called for an independent investigation into the deaths of dozens of African migrants in a recent fire at a Houthi-run detention center.
Martin Griffiths, envoy for the country, said, “It is not only Yemenis who are suffering.”
He added that the plight of the migrant community needs to be addressed too – referring to the horrific fire that broke out last week at a detention facility in the capital.
The facility, holding predominantly Ethiopian migrants, had dozens killed and over 170 seriously injured.
The condition in Yemen is deteriorating, with Iran-backed Houthi militias using civilians as shield.
