Executions by the Houthis have drawn widespread international condemnation

The United Nations, the United States, and the United Kingdom have strongly condemned the execution of nine men by the Houthi group in Yemen.

The execution squad shot the nine men, including one who was a minor at the time of his arrest, in the Yemeni capital, Sanaa, last Sunday.

The nine defendants were convicted by a Houthi court of involvement in the killing of the Houthi leader in an air strike in 2018.

United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said that trial did not meet international standards, while the United States described the execution of the nine men as “shameful” and followed “years of torture”.
