IRAN EMBASSY STAFFER KIDNAPPED IN YEMEN

Muslim World

Armed men kidnapped an employee of the Iranian Embassy in Yemen’s capital Sanaa on 21 July, police sources said, the latest in a series of abductions of foreigners in Yemen. The Iranian man was travelling through the diplomatic quarter in southern Sanaa when gunmen blocked the road, forced him to get out of his vehicle and took him to an unknown location, reports said, adding it was not immediately clear who carried out the kidnapping, they said.

Iran’s Foreign Ministry confirmed that an administrative staff member of its embassy in Sanaa named Nour Ahmad Nikbakht has been kidnapped, the ISNA news agency reported, quoting a ministry spokesman. Yemen’s government is grappling with a host of challenges, including a separatist movement in the south and an insurgency, as it tries to restore authority lost during mass protests in 2011 that overthrew veteran President Ali Abdullah Saleh. In a separate incident, an instructor in the country’s military academy was killed by a bomb placed under his car in Sanaa on 21 July, the Yemeni Defense Ministry’s website reported.
