Yemeni Killed in USA [Archives:2001/39/Front Page]

September 24 2001

Yemen Times has learned from reliable sources based in the USA that a Yemeni-American was killed in Detroit Michigan on Wednesday. According to Yemen Networks, Mr. Ali M. Al-Mansoob, 44, was shot dead to death by another American on Friday. The man charged in the death told police officers that he was angry about last week’s terrorist attacks, Prosecutor Mike Duggan said Friday. Duggan said the man was charged with first-degree premeditated murder and first-degree felony murder, which carry automatic sentences of life in prison without parole.
Yemenis, like many Arabs, have suffered recently from retaliations because of the wide belief in the USA that Muslims and Arabs are responsible for the attacks that took place in New York City and Washington DC earlier this month.
However, this is the first incident in which a Yemeni man was deliberately killed as a consequence of the growing hatred and anger against Arabs and Muslims.
