In Brief.

- Hundreds of street cleaners staged a protest on Tuesday morning in front of the Cabinet to demand a deadline to receive government jobs, meaning they would receive increased benefits. Mohammed Al-Marzoki, head of Street Cleaners' Syndicate, said the government hasn't met promises that were made last year. The Cleaning and Improvement Fund in Sana'a said that the street cleaners do have government jobs.

- Relatives of 18 men who have been missing for three years have accused Houthis of kidnapping the men. The families, all from Harf Sofian district of Sa'ada sent Abdulkareem Thu'ail, head of the General Council of the Abducted Revolutionary Youth, a letter explaining that it was the Houthis--not the state--that had abducted the men. Thu'ail said that he has contacted the Ministry of Human Rights and is looking into the matter.

- In a meeting on Wednesday in Sana'a, the World Bank announced that two grants, amounting to $9.2 million, will be granted to Yemen. The grants were designed to meet what they called the "urgent needs" of Yemen's economy and to support small enterprises and assist government associations.
