Mayor of capital Sana'a escapes assassination attempt


SANA’A, Oct.25 (Saba)- Mayor of the capital Sana'a Abdul Qader Hilal survived an assassination attempt during a visit to inspect the level of hygiene in the neighbourhood of Bab al-Yemen after midnight last night, a source in the security committee said.

Hilal’s bodyguards immediately tracked the person who shot while he was aboard a motorcycle driven by someone else, and they were able to capture them and handed them over to a nearest police station, the source explained to Saba.

The preliminary investigations with the two men revealed that they are soldiers at one of the security units and they were wearing civilian clothes at the time of the accident.

The source pointed out that the security services will continue their investigations with the defendants to know the real motives for shooting as a prelude to forward them to justice.
