The imam of Al-Rahma Mosque in the Al-Darba Al-Olaya neighborhood of Taiz, Yemen, has been murdered

There is something intriguing about what I read today and I want to share it with you. Qassem Mohammed Al-Zubaidi, 35, is alleged to have stabbed to death using a kitchen knife before he went into the mosque to make the call for the dawn prayer on Tuesday. The 80-year-old victim was then beaten with a rock.

Local sources say that the alleged murderer had tried to assault Sheikh Al-Zaghouri on other occasions.

Yemen has witnessed a significant increase in crime over the past few years due to the prevailing lack of security and stability in the country.
