"This never happened," SABA's deputy chief executive told Sputnik, adding the agency was "working as usual."
The Yemeni information minister told The Associated Press earlier that Houthi insurgents had seized Yemen's SABA news agency, in what she allegedly referred to as a "step toward a coup."
"Houthis working at the agency have been interfering in the agency's information policy for two days now," Sputnik's source at the SABA office said.
Tensions in the country escalated Saturday after Houthi fighters kidnapped President Hadi's chief of staff, Ahmed Awad bin Mubarak, and two of his guards.
The Houthi are a major opposition force in the country and were instrumental in removing former Yemeni leader Ali Abdullah Saleh from office in 2012. In September 2014, the insurgency spread to Sanaa and the central and western parts of the country.
