Houthis swap prisoners with Saudi Arabia: spokesman
Yemen's Houthi movement said on Sunday it had exchanged prisoners with its foe Saudi Arabia as a first step toward ending a humanitarian crisis prompted by a year-long conflict that has killed at least 6,000 people. "A first step of understanding and respect for the humanitarian aspect [of the conflict] was the exchange of prisoners today," Houthi spokesman Mohammed Abdul-Salam said in a statement. The Houthis had handed over nine Saudi prisoners in exchange for 100 of their own fighters, he said.
