Gunmen Kill Iranian Diplomat in Yemen

Gunmen killed an Iranian diplomat in a drive-by shooting in Yemeni capital Sanaa on Saturday, AP reported.

Iranian state TV later announced that Ali Asqar Asadi, Iran's economic attaché in Sanaa, was assassinated. The broadcast said Asadi was attacked while driving and suffered four gunshot wounds to the chest and stomach.

A Yemeni official told AP that the gunmen first attempted to kidnap the diplomat by stopping his car. When the diplomat resisted, the assailants shot him and fled the area, which is a busy commercial district.

Another Iranian diplomat was abducted by gunmen in July and remains in captivity.

Al-Qaeda for Arabian Peninsula is believed to be behind the attacks. Iran has been actively supporting the Shia insurgent group, the Houthis, in the ongoing sectarian conflict in Yemen.

black what?

-NOW, before you make some fool of yourself trying to rail on me using all tricks in the books, let all and sundry know that , all the education your parents sacrificed for you was not enough to kill the demon of racism on you!.well it is easy for you to learn this-
@-Living in Africa or Nigeria according to you does not necessarily mean you are black man!.
@ Living in the west ,supporting or sympathizing with the Palestinians does not necessarily make you a Muslim
@-Inside Iran there is a small black population ,virulent supporters of the establishment and some sharing some diverse opinion ,-seriously speaking you are a very sick man and you need a self reevaluation.

But anon black brother, -you must be a very unhappy man in this world in general and here on this blog in particular- for issues of race and stereotypes are issues too alien on such a modestly respected blog -which has a following from HAIFA in Israel to Pretoria,many people coming here to see what the Iranian opposition has to say about the country. Honestly speaking you must be a very old Man living your world of the old, refusing to change with time!.Unknown to you, you have been scoring own goals and only shaming the one who brought you up.
-once again, here is some food for thought-"
stupidity is like fine wine -it matures with age!.-meanwhile you can start your journey to being a less western fan boy by watching this full documentary on You Tube-North Korea exposes western propaganda'
I believe this can be your first step to being a wise man!
