Houthi militias in Sanaa looted money allocated for sponsoring and looking after orphans, Yemeni sources said on Saturday.
Houthis stole the money from the house of Roqaya al-Hajri, the chairman of Al Rahma Foundation for Human Development and who’s also in charge of Dar al-Rahma orphanage in Sanaa.
Houthis raided Hajri’s house on Friday night. They looted 30 million Yemeni rials and kidnapped her sons Younes and Elias.
According to the sources, the Houthi militants who stormed Hajri’s house searched the entire house as they looked for Hajri to detain her because she is the sister of one of late President Ali Abdullah Saleh’s wives.
The Houthis also stole three cars and jewelry and confiscated all cellular phones and laptops.
Houthi militias have been raiding the houses of Saleh’s relatives and party members. They’ve also carried out arbitrary detentions and brutal executions in an attempt to silence those who oppose them.
