54 Yemeni fishermen freed from Eritrean prison center return home

AL-MUKALLA: Fifty-four Yemeni fishermen held for a year in an Eritrean prison center on Sunday returned home after being freed by authorities in the East African country.

The men had been detained in the port city of Massawa following their arrest by the Eritrean navy while fishing in the Red Sea.

It was the second group of fishermen released by the Eritreans to arrive in Yemen’s western city of Hodeidah, after 29 landed last week.

They claimed their boats and other goods were seized when they were apprehended.
