Yemeni intelligence officer killed in Aden

2011-11-17 13:37
Cairo - A senior Yemeni intelligence officer was killed by unknown gunmen in the southern city of Aden, the Yemeni website Lahj News reported on Thursday.

The gunmen shot Colonel Abdel Hakim al-Qadi as he was leaving his car, according to the report.

He was taken to a nearby hospital where he was pronounced dead shortly afterwards.

No-one has claimed responsibility for the attack, which Lahj News said bore the hallmarks of the al-Qaeda terrorist group.

Aden has recently been rocked by a wave of assassinations and bombings.

Earlier this week, security forces arrested a number of Muslim radicals in Aden following a tip-off that al-Qaeda sympathisers had arrived in the city from the restive province of Abyan to attack security and military targets.
