Alain Goma, a French citizen who had been held captive in Yemen by Houthi forces, was freed today, a statement from the French president’s office said.
In the statement, President Emmanuel Macron acknowledged the assistance of Saudi authorities and of Oman’s Sultan Qaboos Bin Said Al-Said in bringing about Goma’s release.
Goma had been in prison in the Yemen capital Sanaa, which is under Houthi control, after being transferred from the Red Sea port of Hudaydah, where his boat ran into difficulties in June.

What was he doing over there? Yemen is not safe and everyone knows that.
Not sure, he may be a marine biologist or something relevant judging by his boat and the equipment onboard. Anyway glad that he is home safe and sound.
