Yemeni defence minister survives assassination bid
Sana`a: Yemen`s Defence Minister Mohammed Nasser Ahmed escaped an assassination attempt Tuesday near his home located in the capital city of Sana`a, Xinhua reported.
A car bomb was discovered near Ahmed`s house and was removed before it could explode, said police sources.
This was the seventh occasion when militants, suspected of belonging to Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), targeted the defence minister since the interim Yemeni government came into existence last December.
On Sep 11, a car bomb attack targeting the defence minister`s motorcade in Sana`a killed 12 people, including his seven bodyguards. The minister was critically injured in his chest, with his face bruised.
