A Yemeni guard opened fire on a group of foreign oil workers shortly after they landed at a company airstrip, killing an Indian man and wounding five other people, officials said.
The shooting Saturday took place at the Occidental Petroleum Corp. in the southern Shabwa province, some 300 miles south of the capital, San'a. The provincial governor, Ali al-Maqqdishi, said the guard was mentally ill.
Yemeni officials said the worker killed in the attack was an Indian national. Those wounded included two Britons, an American, a Tunisian and a Yemeni man.
