One of the eye witnesses said: “The soldiers came with a hilux and one hummer bus. They went straight to where Asiri and his boys were. The soldiers took strategic position and surrounded the building where Asiri and his boys were.
“Some of them went inside and we were hearing noise. They later matched out Asiri and like five of his boys. Two of the boys were with guns.
“When the soldiers were matching them into bus, some thugs were throwing stones at the soldiers and that forced them to be shooting sporadically. The gunshots were much.”
