Westerners targeted in Yemen attack
Sanaa neighbourhood cordoned off by police after rockets hit oil company compound.
Residents told the AFP news agency that three rockets struck near the villas where American oil experts from Safer live.
In a statement posted on an Islamist website, the Jund al-Yemen Brigades said it “launched five mortar shells at the American embassy in Sanaa”.
The US-based SITE Intelligence Group, which monitors such websites, said the statement did not give a date for the attack but acknowledged that one shell missed the target and hit the neighbouring school.
