October 8 2001

The Yemeni Organization for Defense of Human Rights & Democratic Freedoms, has bitterly complained about the sharp increase of violence and killings against Arabs and Muslims in the US, Canada and, Australia. The resources said that four Yemeni citizens have been killed, three in America and one in Canada. Consequently, the Organization has called for an immediate reaction towards these acts of extremism against Arabs and Muslims to save them and to protect their properties.
The Yemeni Organization for the Defense of Human Rights and Democratic Freedoms has also received a complaint from the Yemeni journalist, Mohsen Dallaq, who has carried out a sit-in in the Yemeni Journalist Syndicate (YJS) in Sana’a since the beginning of August, 2001. Dallaq has been protesting the verdicts issued against him by a non-specialized court. The government has previously appealed to the YJS and to the President of the Republic to carry out justice in the matter.
