Baku – APA. A British journalist says he and three other foreign reporters have been deported from Yemen after being detained for several hours, APA reports quoting “The USA Today”.
Oliver Holmes said five armed security agents took them into custody Monday morning from the apartment they share in the Yemeni capital. He said one of the security agents told them they had to leave because of the stories they were writing.
The journalists are two Americans and two Britons.
The deportations come as Yemen is roiled by unrest. Protesters demanding the ouster of longtime President Ali Abdullah Saleh have for weeks staged daily demonstrations in Sanaa and elsewhere in the impoverished country.
The government has used violence against the protesters.
