Yemen's information minister escaped an assassination attempt unharmed Tuesday, his office manager said.
The minister, Ali al-Amrani, was headed to the prime minister's office when the attack occurred, spokesman Abdul Basit al-Qaedi told CNN.
At least 10 bullets were shot in the direction of the vehicle al-Amrani was getting into, al-Qaedi said. Three bullets hit the back window and trunk of the car, he added.
Witnesses said there were at least two gunmen.
Al-Amrani was not hurt in the attack, al-Qaedi said.
The minister's office said al-Amrani has been targeted recently in a hate campaign by pro-revolution groups.FULL STORY
