Opposition journalist stabbed in broad daylight on Sanaa street

first_imgNews Reporters Without Borders voiced shock today at a physical attack on opposition journalist Nabil Sabaie, who was jostled and then stabbed in both shoulders by armed men in broad daylight on a main street of the capital, Sanaa, on 12 November.“This case is yet another reminder that it is still difficult for a journalist to work independently in Yemen,” the press freedom organisation said. “We urge the authorities to carry out a thorough investigation to identify and punish those responsible, pointing out that they have so far failed to follow up any of this year’s many attacks on journalists.”Reporters Without Borders has registered at least 10 press freedom violations in Yemen since the start of the year, including summonses for questioning, prison sentences and physical attacks on members of the press.The Yemeni journalists’ union also condemned the attack on Sabaie and voiced concern about press freedom violations in Yemen since the start of the year.
