Second officer shot


SANA’A: A Yemeni air force officer was shot dead by gunmen on Tuesday, in the second such incident in as many days according to the Defence Ministry. Gunmen riding a motorbike opened fire on Colonel Ali al-Dilmi in front of the military hospital, killing him instantly and fleeing the scene, the ministry said on its website. The attack is the latest in a series of killings of security and military officers in Yemen. On Monday, gunmen shot dead Colonel Abdul Wahab Azzam as he slowed down at an intersecti­on while driving his car in Sana’a. Dozens of Yemeni security and military officers have been assassinat­ed in the past two years, many by bombs planted in their cars or in drive-by shootings, often blamed on al-Qaeda. REUTERS
