United Arab Emirates soldier, aid worker killed in Yemen

A soldier and an aid worker from the United Arab Emirates have been killed in Yemen where their country is taking part in a Saudi-led military campaign against Iranian-allied Houthi militiamen, Emirati and Yemeni sources said on Saturday. The UAE’s state news agency WAM identified the soldier as Captain Hadef Hameed al-Shamesi but gave no details about his death. Separately, a Yemeni security officer said an Emirati aid worker had been shot dead by unknown gunmen on Saturday in Aden, in a sign of continued instability in the southern port city where Yemen’s fragile government is based.
