CAROL COSTELLO, CNN ANCHOR: We have breaking news to tell you about. This just in to the CNN newsroom. I'm going to read it from my computer for you.
An assassin Tuesday killed a U.S. citizen and a Canadian national at a foreign oil company in eastern Yemen.
I'm going to bring Leon Harris in because I'm having a little coughing attack here -- Leon.
LEON HARRIS, CNN ANCHOR: Uh-huh?
COSTELLO: Breaking news here in Yemen.
HARRIS: Well, I'm actually just now getting a chance to read this for myself. And one American and a Canadian dead in a shooting in Yemen. We have seen this happen a number of times in the past few months there, where there's some Yemenis and perhaps even al Qaeda members who are still within that country and who do not want U.S. troops in that region, so -- and do not like an American presence there, as well.
So we'll try to keep our eye on that story. I have yet to get a chance to read that, but we'll try to get some more information on that for you and bring it to you here. So stay with us on that folks.
