2 posts in this topic

SANAA (Reuters) - Motorcycle-riding gunmen linked to al Qaeda shot and killed an American teacher in the Yemeni city of Taiz on Sunday, and Yemeni officials said government forces killed up to 14 militants in clashes and artillery attacks on their strongholds.

The attacks underscore the challenges facing President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi who took office last month after a year of massive protests against his predecessor Ali Abdullah Saleh.

A police source in Taiz said a gunman riding on the motorcycle driven by an accomplice shot a U.S. English language teacher who was also deputy director of a language school, the Swedish Institute.

,,,The attacks underscore the challenges facing President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi who took office last month after a year of massive protests against his predecessor Ali Abdullah Saleh....

My heart and best wishes go out to Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi and the great challenges he faces. That, of course, is the key fact in this news item, not the free reign of Al Qaeda to murder Westerners at will.

This sets the standard for the bloodless, gutless, "neutral" reporting that we've come to expect from Reuters.
