U.K Ambassador Survives Bombing In Yemen

The U.K. ambassador to Yemen escaped a suicide attack on his motorcade today in the capital, Sana’a, four months after the Yemen-based branch of al-Qaeda tried to blow up a U.S. airliner.

A suicide bomber blew himself up shortly before Ambassador Tim Torlot’s motorcade passed, about 2 kilometers (1.2 miles) from the British Embassy, an Interior Ministry official at the scene of the bombing said. Three bystanders, a woman and two men, were wounded and hospitalized, said the official, who requested anonymity because he is not authorized to speak to the media.

The U.K. Foreign Office said a "small" explosion took place next to the ambassador’s car, according to an e-mailed statement. No embassy staff or British nationals were wounded, the Foreign Office said, Bloomberg informs.

Britain and the US temporarily closed their embassies in Yemen in January over fears of a terrorist attack. Reports reaching London said, while the ambassador was unhurt, one person died in the attack.

Police officers at the scene said the only casualty was the bomber and that the three injured bystanders had been rushed to a nearby hospital and confirmed the man was a suicide bomber, likely from al— Qaeda, and had been targeting the ambassador, The Hindu informs.

A year after the constitutional referendum of December 4th, 2016 that saw the victory of the NAY and the blatant defeat of the government front that had proposed the referendum, it can be said with certainty that the trauma for the defeated is now past. But there is still fear in them, not so hidden either...

On December 10, 1948 the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly, its thirty articles enshrining basic and fundamental rights guaranteeing dignity of the human person and equality for all, regardless of race, color, creed or gender. A pipe dream?
