Ambassador Shami Shares his Thoughts on Luke’s Murder

National Yemen

By Dr. Irfan Yusuf Shami

Ambassador of Pakistan to Yemen

Having personally known and interacted with Mr. Luke Somers, I would like to convey my profound condolences on the tragic events that unfortunately led to his assassination. Luke was a great person who had enormous respect for all Yemenis and likewise was equally respected by all Yemenis. His death is indeed not only a great loss for Yemen but also for the journalist community as well as for Yemen-USA relations. I would like to extend my heartfelt condolences to all family members of the deceased journalist.
