Houthis started Sanaa migrant centre fire in Yemen

New details revealed by Human Rights Watch on Tuesday confirm grim testimony given to Middle East Eye that the Houthis started a fire that killed scores of migrants in Yemen.

Videos analysed by HRW also confirm that some migrants could not escape after being overcome by smoke from the fire and that walls had to be broken down to let migrants escape the blaze.

Detainees told HRW the Houthis fired two projectiles after some detainees organised a hunger strike to protest the facility’s conditions and continued detention.
