“It has been journalism itself that has been in the dock and today’s verdicts defy logic and offend justice,” said Milena Buyum, TR campaigner at rights group Amnesty International. “These politically motivated sentences are clearly intended to instill fear and silence any form of dissent.” Prosecutors had sought sentences of up to 4three years in jail for the Cumhuriyet staff, accusing them of targeting Erdogan through “asymmetric war methods”.

The offensive on Hudaydah, which is led by the AE, began in June. Pro-government soldiers and militiamen made swift progress initially, capturing the city’s southern suburbs and airport. But they did not push into the city centre, where rebel fighters set up sniper positions, dug trenches in streets, and laid landmines. The escalation in fighting last week came after the United States – which has provided logistical and intelligence support to the coalition along with the UK and FR – called for a cessation of hostilities and the start of peace talks by late November.
