Twin attacks strike at Western targets in Yemen

Twin attacks on Western targets in Yemen's capital, Sanaa, have left one person dead and at least four injured.

Militants fired a rocket-propelled grenade at a British embassy car, slightly injuring one staff member as well as bystanders, officials said.

In the other incident, a French national died when a guard at an Austrian gas company near Sanaa opened fire, security sources said.
