Saudi Diplomat Killed in Yemen

A Saudi diplomat and his bodyguard have been shot dead in the Yemeni capital, Sanaa, officials say.

Gunmen opened fire on the diplomat's car, causing it to flip over, security officials said.

The gunmen were said to have been dressed as members of the security services.
