A militant attack on a government vehicle in Yemen's business capital, Aden, Wednesday, killed a political security officer and injured seven others, three senior security officials said.
The incident happened as the intelligence officers were heading to work. The injured were taken to a government hospital.
Eyewitnesses told CNN that heavy artillery was used in the attack. Security officials blamed al Qaeda.
"This is not the first time intelligence officers were attacked in Aden," said a senior security official who is not authorized to talk to media. "At least 34 have been killed or injured since last September."FULL STORY
