The 21st Century Phenomenon



A soldier with “emotional problems” opened fire, on 06/24/2007, on oil workers with a major US oil company, killing one and wounding six, including the local American boss, as they left the aircraft. The incident took place at the Occidental Petroleum Corp in the Shaba province, about 500km (300 miles) South East of the capital Sanaa.

Yemen’s interior ministry said a female Indian oil engineer died in the attack, while California-based Occidental Petroleum Corporation (OXY) said only that one of its subcontractors, a non-American, was killed.

The gunman, identified as Jameel al-Raai was shot and wounded by fellow soldiers before being captured..
