Yemeni Counterterrorism Officer Escapes Assassination Attempt

A Yemeni counterterrorism officer was injured after he was attacked by a suspected Al-Qaeda militant in Yemen's capital Sanaa on Monday, the state agency Saba reported quoting a statement by a security source.

Captain Muhsen Homran, the officer in the counterterrorism unit of the central security organization, escaped an apparent assassination attempt while he was at the Berlin roundabout in the Noqom district this after noon, the security source was quoted as saying.
"He came under fire while on his motorbike and got two bullets one hit his neck and the second hit his leg," the source said, adding the officer was admitted to hospital.

The suspected militant, who was behind the attack, was on a motorbike and ran away before the authorities rushed to the site, according to Saba.

Tens of Yemeni military and security officers, mostly intelligence officers, have been killed since the Yemeni army launched a US-backed offensive and drove Al-Qaeda militants out of their strongholds in the south earlier this year.

The killings including those by suicide bombings occurred in main cities including the capital Sanaa which has seen the deadliest ever suicide bombings against military and security targets.

Meanwhile, key parts of Yemen are experiencing alarming security disorder amid continuous division of the armed forces. Concerns are growing the security situation may cast a cloud on the political transition under a West-backed power-transfer deal which was reached after the 2011 unrest.
