(MENAFN - Arab News) SANAA: Armed men killed four members of the political party of Yemen's ousted President Ali Abdullah Saleh in an ambush outside Sanaa on Friday night, the party said.

General People's Congress officials were traveling on the road to Maareb province when attacked, the party's website said. Eight were wounded.
It was not clear if the group was targeted because of its party affiliation and a tribal source in Al-Jawf where some of the men worked said it could have been a tribal vendetta.

Saleh was forced to step down as president in February after a year-long uprising. Restoring stability in Yemen has become an international priority for fear that militants will further entrench themselves.

Saleh was succeeded by his deputy Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi, who has US backing for a transition process that aims to balance the interests of groups including a Shiite movement in north Yemen, southern secessionists and tribal and radical groups which benefited under Saleh's rule.
Saleh, who ruled for 33 years, remains head of the GPC which retains half the seats in a transitional Cabinet.
