An intelligence officer was injured Friday in an attack that took place in Yemen's southern Lahj province, medical sources and eyewitnesses have said.

"The officer was shot by unidentified assailants as he left a mosque in Al-Hawta city," a medical source told The Anadolu Agency.

The attackers later fled the scene, according to eyewitnesses.

There has been no claim of responsibility for the shooting.

Yemen has remained in a state of turmoil since a popular uprising in 2011 ousted longstanding President Ali Abdullah Saleh one year later.
