A Yemeni businessman was killed by unknown gunmen on late Monday in southwestern Taiz province, local sources said.

According to the sources, unidentified militants assassinated businessman Mahmoud Alzaokari , director of Shabco and owner of The Yemen Ko company on Al-Maror street after leaving his home.

The security authorities in Taiz have not issued any statement on the murder of businessman Alzaokari .
No group has claimed responsibility for the incident.

The city, which is under the control of coalition-backed government, has been plagued by insecurity for years, with repeated assassinations and executions on the streets.
