Al-Shamri, chief financial officer of Al-Saeeda TV, was killed by sniper fire while trying to escape the station's headquarters during heavy fighting, local news outlets and the Yemeni Journalists Syndicate reported. The station's offices were shelled amid clashes between pro- and anti-government forces, although it was not clear whether the building had been directly targeted.

Another employee, Mohamed Abd al-Ghani Dabwan, was hospitalized with serious injuries after being caught in the crossfire, news reports said.
