DUBAI, Jan 7 (Reuters) - Yemen's foreign ministry has declared the representative of the U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights persona non grata after what it said were unfair statements, a news agency run by the Saudi-allied government reported on Thursday.

The news agency, sabanew.net, quoted an official source as saying that the representative had "lost professionalism and is persona non grata".

The location of the unnamed representative was not immediately clear. (Reporting by Ali Abdelatti and Katie Paul; Writing by Yara Bayoumy; Editing by Catherine Evans)
