SANAA (Reuters) - Armed men kidnapped a French woman and her Yemeni escort in the center of the Yemeni capital Sanaa on Tuesday, security sources said.

No further details were immediately available on the identity of the woman or what she was doing in Yemen, a country that has been plunged deeper in turmoil after Shi'ite Muslim militias seized control of the capital last September.
