Saudi Diplomat Killed in Yemen
The London Telegraph
A Saudi diplomat and his bodyguard have been killed after their car was raked with gunfire in Yemen.

Gunmen dressed in security forces' uniforms reportedly opened fire at the car of Sergeant Khaled Shobeikan al-Anzi in Sana'a, causing it to flip over, killing him and the bodyguard.

Anzi "came under gunfire from unknown gunmen as he was leaving his home, killing him and his Yemeni bodyguard," Saudi's official news agency SPA quoted a foreign ministry official as saying.

"Yemeni authorities have launched immediate investigations into this criminal act in co-ordination with the kingdom's ambassador in Sana'a to find out the circumstances and motives behind the crime and to bring the criminals to justice," the official was quoted as saying.

The attack, which has not immediately been claimed, took place in Sana'a's southern district of Hada, where embassies and diplomats' residences are located.

In October 2010, three people including a diplomat were hurt in a rocket-propelled grenade attack on a British embassy car in Sanaa.

That attack came less than six months after Britain's ambassador to the Arabian Peninsula country escaped an assault by a suicide bomber on his convoy in the capital.

More recently, attacks in Sana'a have targeted members of the security forces and have mostly been claimed by al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), the network's deadliest branch.
