Yemen cartoonist Kamal Sharef arrested

There are few details regarding this story, so I’m not sure what to make of it other than if true, a Yemen editorial cartoonist has been “forcible disappeared.” The Armies of Liberation website reports that Security authorities arrested cartoonist Kamal Sharef and confiscated his personal belongings including a laptop computer. Others arrested included his brother and others in the house at the time. Where they were taken is unknown. Apparently, if I’m reading this correctly, Kamal was active on Facebook and leading an online campaign to end corruption and the “works of the Ministry of Electricity.
