Officials: 2 tribesmen, colonel killed in YemenMarch 2, 2014 @ 5:03 am
SANAA, Yemen (AP) - A government official says gunmen have ambushed a colonel in the security forces in central Yemen, killing him and wounding his guard.
The official said the colonel was traveling by vehicle Sunday on the outskirts of the city of Radaa, south of Sanaa.
Meanwhile, armed tribesmen clashed with security forces on the southern edge of Sanaa, leaving two gunmen dead and three soldiers wounded, another official said. The official said the clashes erupted when the force attempted to prevent the tribesmen from entering Sanaa with guns, in line with a government policy to limit weapons in the capital. The official called the tribesmen's attempt to enter Sanaa a "provocation."
Both officials spoke anonymously because they weren't authorized to speak to reporters.
