Prominent Yemeni journalist and Houthi activist killed

SANAA (Reuters) - Assailants on a motorbike on Wednesday shot dead one of Yemen's top journalists, Abdul Kareem al-Khaiwani, who is also an activist close to the country's dominant Houthi group, police sources said.

The group's television channel al-Maseerah said al-Khaiwani, who had served as a delegate for the group in a national dialogue conference on Yemen's future, was "martyred in a criminal assassination" near his house in the center of the capital Sanaa.
