According to a trusted source in Yemen, Iranian nationals Zia’ullah Pourahmari, Keyvan Qadari, Behrooz Rohaniand Sayfi Ibrahim Sayfi are at imminent risk of being forcibly returned to Iran and Iraq, where they would be at risk of torture and other ill-treatment. All of them are members of the Baha’i faith, and may have been detained solely because of this; if this is the case, they are prisoners of conscience. According to the source, they are held at the Criminal Investigation prison in the capital, Sana’a.
