An exchange of more than 800 prisoners between Yemen and Houthis began on Friday, the International Committee for the Red Cross said, APA reports citing The New Arab.

The three-day exchange will see flights transport prisoners between Saudi Arabia and Yemen's capital, Sanaa, said Majed Fadail, a deputy minister for human rights for Yemen's internationally recognised government.

Other flights will bring prisoners between Sanaa and other Yemeni cities controlled by the internationally recognised government, he said.

The Red Cross said that on Friday, there would be two rounds of simultaneous flights between Aden and Sanaa to transfer prisoners.
