SANAA, Dec 8 (Reuters) - The Yemeni government said on Sunday there had been an assassination attempt on an adviser to the country's president, the latest of a wave of bombings and shootings.

A sniper fired shots with a weapon equipped with a silencer on Saturday at Yassin Said Noman's car as it was driving through the capital Sanaa, the official Saba news agency said.

Noman is also vice president of Yemen's National Dialogue. The bullet did not hit Noman as the vehicle was armoured, the agency said. (Reporting by Mohammed Ghobari; Writing by Maha El Dahan; Editing by Andrew Roche)
