At least 13 soldiers and an intelligence officer were killed while several wounded in separate attacks in Yemen Sunday.


A Yemeni intelligence officer was gunned down by unidentified men Sunday night in the country's Lahj province, security and medical sources said.

The assailants opened fire with automatic rifles on Tawzia Hassan Ahmed's car in a main street in Houta city, Lahj's provincial capital, killing him on the spot, Xinhua quoted a security official as saying.

Ahmed was returning home from his workplace when the gunmen riding on a motorcycle sprayed bullets at his vehicle, the security official said.

He "received eight bullets in his body", the official added.

Earlier in the day up to 13 soldiers were killed and several others wounded in a suicide car bombing that targeted the military police headquarters in Yemen's Hadramout province.

The attack occurred in the afternoon when a suicide bomber blew up his explosive-laden car at the military police headquarters in the coastal city of Mukalla.

Recently Yemeni intelligence and security personnel have been targeted and killed in series of attacks in several main southern towns.
