SANAA, Dec 5 (Reuters) - Gunmen shot and killed a Western doctor and a Filipina nurse in front of their colleagues in a hospital inside the compound of Yemen's defence ministry on Thursday, a medical and a defence ministry source said.

The sources said the gunmen were either killed or captured.

At least 20 people were killed in a car bomb attack and gun battle at the complex in the capital Sanaa, sources said earlier. (Reporting by Mohammed Ghobari, writing by Sami Aboudi; Editing by Mark Trevelyan)
