ICRC spokeswoman Dibeh Fakhr in Geneva confirmed a "security incident" on Tuesday in Yemen that left an employee "slightly injured" but declined to give further details.
The Yemeni official says the female staffer was driving her car when gunmen shot at her. He spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media.
The woman's nationality was not immediately known.
Sanaa has seen several assassination attempts targeting government officials and opposition figures as well as attacks on diplomats and foreigners in the political turmoil following the uprising that ousted Yemen's long-time ruler Ali Abdullah Saleh.
