Gunmen shot dead on Tuesday the Sports Minister in the Iran-backed Houthi militias’ illegitimate government.
Hassan Zaid died in hospital from his wounds after gunmen opened fire on his car in an area of the Houthi-held capital Sanaa that houses embassies, two sources close to his family told Reuters.
Zaid’s daughter was also in the car and was seriously injured.
No one claimed responsibility for the attack in the capital that the Houthis have controlled since 2014.
Zaid was wanted by the Saudi-led Arab coalition, which had announced a 10-million-dollar reward for anyone who would step forward with information about him.
