SANAA: A mortar shell was fired overnight in the direction of the French embassy in Yemen, while a car bomb exploded meters away in Sanaa’s diplomatic quarter, a police source said Monday. “The two attacks happened after midnight. There were no victims,” the source said. The shell fell by a concrete block, installed for security reasons on a road leading to the embassy, he added. That blast came shortly after a car exploded on the nearby main road. “The shell landed about thirty meters from the wall of the French embassy,” while the car “was parked halfway between the embassy and the residence of former president Ali Abdullah Saleh in the capital’s diplomatic district of Hadda, the same source said. Those explosions came shortly after two devices went off in a minibus parked in the center of Sanaa not far from the defense ministry, also causing no casualties, a military source told Agence France-Presse.
