US officers killed armed civilians in Yemen capital

A Yemeni soldier mans a checkpoint in the capital Sanaa on April 29, 2014Two US officers shot and killed two armed civilians who tried to kidnap them last month in Yemen’s capital, a State Department official said. The two Americans were removed from Yemen shortly after the shooting, the official added. “We can confirm that, last month, two US Embassy officers in Yemen fired their weapons after being confronted by armed individuals in an attempted kidnapping at a small commercial business in Sanaa,” deputy State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf said in a statement to AFP. Suspected Al-Qaeda militants attacked Yemen’s presidential palace earlier Friday, killing five guards and triggering a fierce gunfight as the extremists hit back at the offensive.
