Senior US-Embassy Security Man Murdered in Yemen

Kasem Aklan, a senior security man at the United States embassy in Yemen, was shot to death by gunmen on motorcycles, Thursday, as he drove his car on one of the main streets in the capital, Sana'a.

An American diplomat said Aklan coordinated the American-Yemeni investigation into last month's attack on the embassy over the video "Innocence of Muslims".
