Westerners killed in Yemen

An American, a Canadian and a Yemeni employed at a Western oil firm in Yemen have been shot dead, according to an official in the capital Sanaa. The attacker wounded another Westerner before turning his gun on himself, the official said. He told Reuters news agency that the attack occurred in the oil-rich province of Marib, about 170 kilometres (105 miles) east of Sanaa. Opposition to the US has been widespread in Arab countries over the coming American-led war on Iraq. The Yemeni official said the gunman was a carpenter working on the premises of the oil firm. It is believed to be the US company Hunt Oil, the only western oil firm in Marib. The nationality of the wounded foreigner is not known. Full Story
