SANAA – A French diplomat was killed and two others injured in an attack in Yemeni capital Sanaa on Monday, a senior security source said.

Unidentified gunmen opened fire on the diplomats near the French embassy in Sanaa's Al-Hadda district, the source told Anadolu Agency.

According to the source, who gave no further details, the slain diplomat had been responsible for security at the European Union mission in Yemen.

There has been no claim of responsibility for Monday's attack.

Yemen has been dogged by turmoil since pro-democracy protests in 2011 forced autocratic president Ali Abdullah Saleh to step down after 33 years in power.
