Urgent appeal to remove the corpses disintegrating on Yemeni streets
Journomania has received an alarming email from the Hood Organization for Defending Rights and Freedom, attached with horrendous pictures of human corpses disintegrating on the streets of Yemen and requesting help in removing these bodies to protect the human dignity
of the unidentified dead people, including pictures of dead children, besides the urgent need to eliminate any further pollution that might lead to an environmental hazard or an epidemic.
Hood for Defending Rights and Freedom appealed to the Internationl Humanitarian Relief Organizations working in Yemen to remove the dead bodies that are lying on the side of the roads in Hasab area in the capital, Sana’a that began to disintegrate without any formal or informal authorities making any effort to remove them.
Hood claims ‘What is happening is a serious affront to human dignity, especially with the frequency of eye witnesses that Hood received on the existence of dead bodies lying on the pavement of the road, and others in the abandoned buildings that families have left or that have died inside of them as a result of the heavy shelling which hit the region’.
Hood confirmed the existence of swollen and to some extent rotten corpses that are still on the streets. Some activists in the Media Council of the Change Square provided the photos. Nadia Abdullah and Ismail Shamakh, were the two youth activists that were able to enter the area and document some of this appalling humanitarian situation.
