The Yemeni abductees' mothers league (AML) staged on Sunday a protest outside the UN Higher Commission for Refugees, calling for the release of 1,906 abductees and forcibly disappeared people from jails in Sana'a and Aden.

"1,800 abductees and forcibly disappeared people are [detained] at Houthi jails and 106 others held by Aden-based military and security forces," AML said in a statement.

450 people have been detained at Houthi prisons for 4 years now, and 26 have been over 3 years forcibly disappeared in Aden, the statement read.

Abduction and disappearance of hundreds of innocent people have been unjustifiably prolonged in the north and south of Yemen throughout four years, AML said.

Mothers accused rights and human groups of "letting down abductees who are suffering torture and bitterness behind bars."

Abductees and detainees have been losing their scientific and practical life in the dark of jails, risking unprotected life, they added.

The NGO AML held the Houthi group and Aden-based military and security forces responsible for the abductees' safety.

They called the UN and UNHCR to "press for the release of abductees and forcibly disappeared people and end this lingering suffering."

They also called all Yemenis to help mothers have their children released.
