A Yemeni journalist with the independent Yaman News outlet and the state-run Yemen TV station has been shot to death. Journalist Ahmed al-Shaibani was reporting on the fighting in the city of Taiz. A photographer who was reporting with al-Shaibani says he believes the journalist was purposefully targeted by pro-Houthi rebels. The two were in Taiz to report on a fire in a plastics factory that had been hit by a shell from pro-Houthi fighters. Meanwhile, also in Yemen, a drone strike killed three people in the southern city of Huta on Monday. The attack also badly damaged the offices of public water and telecommunications.
