Yemen on Sunday accused a Shiite rebel group of kidnapping nine foreigners in the country's north. The Interior Ministry said the foreigners were kidnapped Friday by a rebel group led by Abdel Malak al-Hawthi while on a picnic in northern Sada province. Sunday's statement did not identify the foreigners. But local Yemenis in Sada said the group included a German doctor, his wife and five children, as well as a Briton and his wife. They spoke on condition of anonymity for fear of government reprisal. The state news agency Saba said the foreigners worked in a hospital in Sada.
