Two US hostages held captive by Iran-backed group in Yemen freed in trade | Washington Examiner

The two Americans that were held hostage in Yemen have been set free and will return to their families. They were freed due to a trade deal. The two captured Americans include humanitarian worker Sandra Loli and businessman Mikael Gidada. They also were able to transfer 200 Houthi rebels back to Yemen on the same plane that would take the two Americans’ home. The Houthis are responsible for some of the attacks against Saudi Arabia.
