TAIZ (Debriefer)--The national commission to investigate alleged violations to human rights has launched a probe into human rights violations in Taiz province in southwest Yemen.

We are investigating the chief of the military police Brig. Gen. Mohammed Salim Al-Khawlani for alleged human rights violations committed in recent months, it said in a statement on Saturday.

Earlier, it questioned the province's security chief Brig. Gen. Mansur Al-Akhali in connection with the killing of Mohammed Mahdi and confiscating his properties at the hands of security members last month, it said.

The probe covers complaints by locals in the district of Jabal Habashi that they were abused physically and mentally during security operations months ago.
