Japanese diplomat stabbed in attempted kidnapping in Yemen

A Japanese politician survived an attack by jihadists in Yemen:
Armed men stabbed a Japanese diplomat in the Yemeni capital Sanaa today when he resisted a kidnapping attempt near his house, a security source said.

It was the latest in a spate of attacks on foreigners in the impoverished Arab state, where the government is struggling to restore law and order since former president Ali Abdullah Saleh stepped aside in late 2011 following mass protests.

The source said the diplomat was in a stable condition in hospital after being stabbed in the head and hand with a dagger.

A taxi carrying two armed men pulled over in front of the diplomat’s car while he was driving alone on his way to the embassy and attacked him with a knife, a spokesman for the Japanese embassy in Sanaa said.

The diplomat, who is the second secretary at the embassy, suffered several stab wounds, he said.

“I saw him after the attack... He is at the hospital now for treatment and checkup,” said the spokesman, adding he did not know if the attack was an attempt to kidnap the diplomat.
He's lucky to survive. Yemen is obviously not a safe place for people from civilized countries if they're being overrun with al Qaeda terrorists.
