An international watchdog Tuesday accused Yemen's Houthis, of committing abuses including hostage taking, torture and enforced disappearances of people they hold in detention. New York-based Human Rights Watch said in a statement it documented 16 cases in which Houthi authorities held people unlawfully, largely to extort money from relatives or to exchange them for prisoners held by opposing forces."I spoke to many Houthis leaders ... but they do nothing," she was quoted as saying. The report said she paid Houthi officials about 1.5 million Yemeni riyals, or around $6,000, over the last three years, but her husband remains detained.HRW said Houthi authorities did not respond to a request for comment.
