|German shot dead in Yemeni capital: security official||
Unknown gunmen shot dead a German employee working for his country's embassy in Sanaa on Sunday, a security official told AFP.
Gunmen in a vehicle opened fire at the man as he was leaving a store in Sanaa's southern Hada district, where foreign embassies are located, the official and witnesses there said.
According to Reuters, the attack took place outside a supermarket in the city. Two sources said the employee had been working on the embassy's security team.
Security forces in Yemen frequently come under attack by suspected militants especially in the southern and eastern parts of the country.
The Yemeni government has beefed-up security in the Yemeni capital to prevent attacks. But security measures have not produced the intended results in the past.
