US-linked Yemeni man killed in drive-by shooting in Sanaa

A Yemeni man working on security issues with the US embassy in the capital Sanaa has been killed in a drive-by shooting.

Qassem Aqlani was going to work when he was shot dead by a man on a motorbike, Yemeni and embassy officials said.

The BBC's Gordon Corera says the murder fits the model of targeted assassinations by al-Qaeda in the region.
