French man shot dead in Yemeni capital - security sources

Gunmen shoot and kill a Frenchman working for the EU mission in Yemen Monday. Security sources say unidentified gunmen blocked the diplomatic vehicle and opened fire. There is no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack. (SOUNDBITE)(Arabic) SANAA RESIDENT, ZAKARIA RAJEH, SAYING: "We heard the shooting and we ran to the scene and we found two Frenchmen injured by unknown people. We do not know who is behind the attack. Of the two wounded Frenchmen, one of them died and the other is alive and in recovery." Westerners have frequently come under attack in Yemen, an impoverished U.S.-allied country fighting Islamist militancy. Last week the Yemeni army launched an offensive to drive al Qaeda out of their strongholds in two southern provinces.
