The US State Department says it will pay up to $5 million for information about the killers of an American citizen who was killed in Taiz city, southwestern Yemen, in 2012
The department said on Wednesday that its "Rewards for Justice" program would offer the cash to anyone with information leading to the arrest or conviction of the killers of the US citizen Joel Shrum.
The 29-year-old educator was shot and killed by a motorcyclist while on the way to his workplace at the International Training and Development Centre.
The International Training and Development Centre is one of the oldest training centers in Yemen, and have contracted with the Yemeni government for the provision of training courses in a number of areas, according to the Center’s website.
Since 1984, the program has paid more than $125 million to more than 80 people who have provided information that has helped bring terror suspects to justice or prevented terrorist attacks.
