Three killed as worker opens fire at Saudi-Yemen border

Riyadh: Three persons were killed at a Yemen border crossing when a Saudi immigration worker opened fire, killing a colleague and police officer before being shot himself, Saudi authorities said.

The 34-year-old employee of the Wadia crossing shot two of his colleagues at the frontier post on night, after they accused him of missing shifts, the Najran province administration said via Twitter.

One died instantly while another was injured and hospitalised.

The gunman went on to kill a police officer before being shot dead as he tried to flee the scene. APP/AFP
