UAE-Houthi coordination results in the release of a US hostage kidnapped by the militia

US President Donald Trump announced that a US citizen kidnapped 18 months ago in Sanaa has been freed and returned to his family.

“I have the honor to announce that Danny Burch, a US citizen who has been held hostage for 18 months in Yemen, has been recovered and has been able to return to his wife and children,” Trump said in a tweet on Monday.

“I appreciate the support the United Arab Emirates has offered to bring Danny home.” Trump added.

Trump did not give any further details on the circumstances of the release of 66-year-old Danny Burch when he was abducted in the Yemeni capital, which is occupied by the Houthis.
