Two unknown subjects are wanted in connection with the murder of United States Embassy employee, Qassam Aqlan, on October 11, 2012, in Sana’a, Yemen. At approximately 9:00 a.m. AST, Aqlan left his home in his car and was met by two men. One approached him and asked if he was Qassam Aqlan. When Aqlan confirmed his identity, the man shot him. The shooter, Subject #1, then got onto a motorcycle with Subject #2, and they drove from the scene.
Subject #1 is described as a tall male with light-colored skin, light-colored short hair, hazel eyes, and a thin build. He is presumed to be Yemeni and speaks with a Sana'ani accent.
Subject #2 is described as a male with medium-colored skin and wearing a short beard and mustache. He is presumed to be Yemeni and was seen leaving the area wearing a keffiyeh (scarf).
