Gunmen shot dead an American citizen in the Yemeni city of Taez on Sunday, two defense ministry officials said.
Two men in a motorcycle fired eight shots at the teacher who was on his way to work at a Swedish language center, the officials said.
The victim's full name was not immediately available.
"We are investigating the killing as this is the first of its kind against a western national in Taiz," one of the officials said. Neither wanted to be named because they are not authorized to speak to the media.
No one claimed responsibility for the attack.FULL STORY
