HOOD Calls for Probe into Fire at “Al-Akhdam” Homes [Archives:2004/745/Local News]

June 10 2004

National Organization for Defending Rights and Freedom (HOOD) has demanded that the Ministry of Human Rights and Parliament members form a joint commission of investigation into the fire incident last week in Al-Wahda, Sana'a City, which destroyed 55 homes belonging to the marginalized “Al-Khadam” (black minority).
The organization, in its letters, expressed its conviction that the fire was set intentionally, as the alternative method to force the inhabitants to vacate the location following failed attempts to relocate them peacefully.
