Yemen's defence minister has survived an assassination attempt which killed at least 11 people, including seven of his bodyguards, according to security officials.
The attack targeting Maj Gen Muhammad Nasir Ahmad took place near government offices in central Sana.
It comes a day after the second-in-command of Yemen's branch of al-Qaeda was reportedly killed.
