In two separated gun incidents, a Mawyah District man was accidentally killed by his son, and a Khadir girl was accidentally killed by her brother who was playing with his machine gun.

In the first death, Naji Mohammad Al-Daboos was killed by his son Hamdi.

While the son was cleaning his gun, he accidentally shot his father in the head as he was standing in front of him.

In the second case, the Yemen Times had previously reported that it was alleged that a lion killed Aneesa Ali Ahmad, 21, from the area of Khadir.

In fact, security authorities have since determined that the brother shot her dead, but fearing the consequences, the brother alleged along with some sheikhs in the area that the victim was devoured by the so-called Tahish Al-Houban, a wild lion in the area.
