SANAA: A Red Cross employee was killed in Yemen’s southern city of Taiz on Saturday, an ICRC spokesman said.
“One of our colleagues was killed by an armed man in Taiz city,” Sanaa-based Red Cross official Adnan Hizam told AFP.
Most of Taiz is controlled by forces loyal to President Abedrabbo Mansour Hadi, while the Houthi militia still hold many parts of the surrounding area.
An AFP photographer in Taiz who visited the scene of the shooting said a gunman had opened fire on an ICRC vehicle in the Zabab district in the west of the city.
The aid worker was killed by multiple gunshots to the heart, according to a hospital source who spoke on condition of anonymity.
The International Committee of the Red Cross has not made public the aid worker’s nationality or name.
“We are in mourning for one of our colleagues who was shot dead in #Yemen this morning. We are trying to find out more about this tragic incident,” ICRC Yemen tweeted.
