Central Security official killed by explosive device in Taiz


A security official in Southwestern Yemen's Taiz province was killed when an explosive device planted on a highway near the old airport area west of the city.

A medical source at The Central Prison Hospital in Taiz told Al-Masdar online that the central prison security officer, Lieutenant Akram Razaz Seif, was killed by an explosive device planted on 30th Street while he was passing by his motorcycle in the area at 10 a.m.

He added that the officer's body was taken to Al-Thawra General Hospital.

The device was probably the remnants of the canisters and mines planted by Houthi militias in the streets and neighborhoods of Taiz.

Another explosive device exploded in the area this morning, causing no casualties, he said.

He appealed to all concerned authorities to save their lives and children and intervene to remove and clear the mines left by the Houthi terrorist militias in the area.
