He was held for more than a week in a prison in Lahij province, south of the capital, before being handed over to security forces. A freelancer who writes occasionally for the New York Times and International Herald Tribune, Johnson had, in addition to covering the protests, been working on a story about human trafficking from Africa to the Middle East via Yemen, a subject he has covered in other articles in the past. After being held for 11 days, he was put on a flight to the United Arab Emirates on 6 July. The Yemeni authorities gave him 72 hours to leave the country in 2010, when he was doing a story on sexual violence against women.
