Security guards of the Security Director of al-Dhale’ exchanged fire with attackers. One of the gunmen, Muhsen al-Twaiti, fired two shots at the car of the Security Director. "The security guards opened fire on them and wounded one of them," Mohammed al-Sharabi, an official in al-Dhale' Security Administration, told Yemen Observer.
"The attack occurred in the highway. The security was not harmed in the attack. They are from the so-called Southern Movement," added al-Sharabi. "The one who is arrested is now in a hospital in the capital to be treated and interrogated. The second one just ran away on a motorcycle.
