Yemeni lieutenant killed by car bomb

26th Sep 2013

A Yemeni lieutenant colonel was killed on Wednesday by a bomb planted in his car, the state news agency said, the latest in a string of attacks on security officials blamed by government on insurgents.

The Saba news agency said the incident took place in al-Atiq, the capital of the volatile southern province of Shabwa, near the city’s vegetable market.

The blast killed Lieutenant Colonel Mohammed al-Saidi and seriously wounded another man, a passer-by, the official said. A medical source also confirmed the report of one death.

The incident was Yemen’s third assassination in as many days. On Tuesday a Yemeni air force officer was shot dead by gunmen in the capital Sanaa and on Monday, gunmen shot dead another colonel as he approached a busy intersection in Sanaa.

Dozens of Yemeni security and military officers have been assassinated in the past two years, many by bombs planted in their cars or in drive-by shootings, often blamed on al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula or affiliated groups.

On Friday, suspected jihadis launched spectacular dawn attacks on three police and army positions in Shabwa province, claiming the lives of at least 56 security personnel.

It was the deadliest day for the army since a suicide bombing in the capital Sanaa on May 21 last year in which some 100 soldiers were killed.

Last month, at least one air force officer was killed and several others were wounded when a bomb tore through a bus carrying them to their base in Sanaa.

Stabilizing Yemen is important to Western and Gulf Arab states. Islamist militants have used areas beyond government control to plot attacks against international airliners and oil facilities.
