SANAA - Yemen offered a $25,000 reward on Thursday to catch the killers of a Saudi Arabian diplomat, a day after he was gunned down in an attack that security authorities have blamed on al-Qaida.

The killing on Wednesday of Khaled al-Enizi, a military officer at the Saudi embassy, and his Yemeni bodyguard underscored the challenges facing the US-allied state since an uprising last year that ousted President Ali Abdullah Saleh.

A Yemeni security committee offered a reward of five million rials ($25,000) for any information leading to the killers, state news agency Saba said.
