Yemeni journalist jailed after alleging US involvement in missile attack


A Yemeni journalist jailed for his purported links to al-Qa’ida appears to have been targeted for his work uncovering information on US complicity in attacks in the country, Amnesty International has said.

‘Abdul Ilah Shayi’, who claimed that the USA was involved in a deadly attack on an alleged al-Qa’ida training camp, was yesterday sentenced to five years in prison by the Specialized Criminal Court in the capital Sana’a.

His lawyers and activists in Yemen say the charges against him were fabricated as a result of his outspoken journalism.

“There are strong indications that the charges against ‘Abdul Ilah Shayi’ are trumped up and that he has been jailed solely for daring to speak out about US collaboration in a cluster munitions attack which took place in Yemen,” said Philip Luther, Amnesty International’s Deputy Director for the Middle East and North Africa.
