Sanaa - The Yemeni government said on Sunday there had been an assassination attempt on an adviser to the country's president, the latest of a wave of bombings and shootings.
A sniper fired shots with a weapon equipped with a silencer on Saturday at Yassin Said Noman's car as it was driving through the capital Sanaa, the official Saba news agency said.
Noman is also vice-president of Yemen's National Dialogue.
The bullet did not hit Noman as the vehicle was armoured, the agency said. - Reuters
