A member of Yemen's governing party is reported to have been shot dead in the volatile north of the country.
Witnesses say gunmen opened fire on a car carrying the MP, Saleh Hendi, and several of his bodyguards.
The attack took place in the north-western province of Saada, a region where government troops have been battling a Zaidi Shia rebellion.
Fighting resumed earlier this year, six months after the government and rebels had agreed a ceasefire.
Hundreds of people have been killed since the rebellion broke out in 2004.
