Gunmen kidnap British national in Yemeni capital

AFP , Monday 3 Feb 2014

Gunmen kidnapped a British oil-sector employee in the Yemeni capital on Monday, witnesses and an industry official told AFP, the second abduction of a foreigner in Yemen since Friday.

The British national was seized in the tightly-patrolled Hada district in central Sanaa, just three days after a tribesman kidnapped a German citizen and after overnight explosions rocked Sanaa, two of them near the French embassy.
