The attacker, who also allegedly assassinated the soldier hours earlier, fled after targeting the students, the security official said, adding that the soldier was working as a bodyguard for Seiyun’s security chief.
In a separate incident in Qattan, a young shop owner belonging to the Batis tribe was shot dead by an unidentified gunman who fled the scene.
Security services in Hadhramout have opened investigations into the attacks and are pursuing the gunmen, the official said.
