SANAA (Debriefer)--Director of the Sanaa municipality Abdu Saleh Al-Ansi and deputy director of the capital's works office Ameen Abdu Aqlan and office employee Ameen Khusrouf were killed and three other works from the office injured in a dispute with armed locals in the old Sanaa city on Saturday.
The dispute erupted while the officials were removing goods of vendors violating regulations in the Bab Al-Yemen neighbourhood, a local official told Debriefer.
It turned into a gunfight, with Abdulaziz Al-Sharifi and his sons Suleiman, Yaqub and Yunus opening fire at the officials, the official said.
A hunt has been launched for the perpetrators, the official added.
Killings have recently increased in the capital of Yemen Sanaa and other Houthi-controlled provinces amid obvious failure of the authorities to put an end to carrying guns.
