Houthi court upholds execution order of Baha’is leader

Republican Yemen

Houthi-controlled Court of Appeal upheld on Sunday the preliminary ruling that ordered the execution of Hamed bin Haydara, the leader of the Baha’i sect, which is a religious minority in Yemen.

The court ruling also ordered that his properties as well as institutions owned by Bahais be confiscated.

In April last year, the US Department of State condemned the Iran-allied insurgents for mistreating, detaining, and torturing Baha’is, a minority group in Yemen.
