Associated Press

CAIRO (AP) — The International Committee of the Red Cross says the Houthi rebels in Yemen have released more than 100 war prisoners linked to the country’s long-running conflict. It says release took place Sunday morning in the Houthi-held capital of Sanaa. The unilateral release came more than a year after Yemen’s warring sides freed more than 800 prisoners in a major exchange in the country in April last year. Thousands of people are still believed to be held as prisoners of war since the conflict erupted in 2014.
