A Yemeni intelligence officer on Tuesday succumbed to injuries sustained during an armed attack one day earlier in Sanaa that left another officer dead, a security source said.

"Brig. Gen. Mohamed al-Eriej died today in a Sanaa hospital from serious injuries sustained during Monday's attack by unidentified gunmen," the source, who asked not to be named, told Anadolu Agency.

On Monday, militants on a motorcycle opened fire on al-Eriej and Lt. Col. Abdel-Rahman al-Nagdi, badly injuring the former and killing the latter.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attack.

Numerous police and army facilities have been attacked in Yemen in recent months, leaving hundreds of security personnel dead and injured.

Yemen has struggled to maintain law and order since the 2012 ouster of long-serving president Ali Abdullah Saleh.
