Unidentified gunmen on Tuesday assassinated a security official in the town of Ataq, the capital of Shabwah governorate, local sources told Alsahwah Net.
The sources said the gunmen shot dead Mohammed Shalqam, the deputy director of the Civil Status in Shabwah, pointing out that the gunmen managed to escape.
Unidentified gunmen last December assassinated an intelligence officer, Salem Yusar, in Shabwah governorate.
Some terrorist groups are operating in southern governorates causing insecurity and instability. Terrorist operations are carried out from time to time.
Meanwhile, the Yemeni government accuses militias of the Houthis and ousted President Ali Abdullah Saleh of standing behind these groups.
