Text size Aa Aa

A Japanese diplomat is recovering in a Yemeni hospital after he resisted a kidnapping attempt in the capital Sanaa on Sunday.

He is believed to have suffered several stab wounds.

This incident is the latest in a spate of attacks on foreigners in the impoverished Arab state since the former president of the country stepped aside in 2011.
