Gunmen assassinate a neighborhood official in Taiz City


Unidentified gunmen aboard a motorcycle assassinated a neighborhood official near a police station in the southwestern city of Taiz on Thursday evening.

A security source told Al-Masdar online that unidentified gunmen fired a barrage of bullets at Tawfiq al-Rada’ee, killing him in the vegetable market next to the Sept. 26 police station, and then fleeing towards an unknown destination.

He added that the Rada’ee is an official of one of the city's downtown neighborhood.

The incident followed a day of violent clashes between armed gangs that ended in the killing of four people, including a civilian north-west of Taiz city.
