A group of Houthi rebels stormed this Thursday on premises where the currently closed US Embassy in the capital city of Yemen, Sana’a, reports Al Arabiya, which quotes an official from the State Department.

It is specified that the insurgents confiscated certain goods and documents, while arresting some Yemeni employees who remain there and work for the Americans.

“We are concerned that Yemeni staff at the US Embassy in Sana’a continue to be detained without explanation and call for their immediate release. Most of those detained have been released, but the Houthis continue to detain other Yemeni Embassy employees.” , the media cites the official’s words.

From Washington they also demanded the return of all seized possessions, as well as the vacating of the complex. Activities at that diplomatic headquarters were suspended in 2015, a year after the Houthis expelled the internationally recognized government from the capital.

The details are known after Bloomberg reported Tuesday that at least 25 Yemeni nationals working for the US were detained by rebels in recent weeks.
