Yemeni sports journalist Qasim Al-Buaisi

Armed Houthis on Thursday kidnapped Yemeni journalist Qasim Al-Buaisi in western Hodeidah province and took him to an unknown place. 

It is the first time a sports journalist has been kidnapped by the Houthi Group which has been responsible for forced disappearances, abductions and torturing of many reporters in Yemen. 

Children of Al-Buaisi are calling on the International Association of Journalists to show solidarity with their father as they wish he comes back home safely and soon. 

Al-Buaisi is a pioneering sports journalist who has contributed to the sports journalism since it began in the country.

The Houthi Group seized power in late 2014 triggering a civil war and a Saudi-led military intervention. 

The freedom of the press has since suffered the worst setback in Yemen's history.
