You can see in the pictures that 22-year-old man lying on a rug on his front before being executed, then his body hanged from a crane where onlookers filmed and took photographs the scene on their phones.
This was the 2nd public execution for the similar case in the capital controlled by Shia Houthi rebels in the last two weeks.
Muhammad al-Maghrabi was previously shot dead by a police officer because he had raped and murdered a three-year-old girl.
This public execution has been used by rebels as a demonstration of how they are tackling crime in the region.
Even in the middle of 2014 capital has been controlled by Houthi insurgents. The Shia religious people and political movement have been accused of human rights violations including the child soldiers.
The group’s slogan is “God is the Greatest, Death to America, Death to Israel, Curse the Jews, Victory to Islam.”
According to UN figures, the civil war has been started from the past two years, up to 10,000 civilians have been killed, three million have been displaced and conflict is killing 75 every day.
