Sanaa: Yemeni security officials say two civilians were killed and a third was wounded when their car, rigged by al Qaeda militants, exploded in the southern port city of Aden.
The officials say the militants planted explosives in the car of a man they suspected of being a government informer. The man was killed in the blast, which occurred as the three were driving into Aden today.
The officials say the injured man was taken to a hospital. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they are not authorised to talk to the media.
The car`s owner was from the nearby Abyan province where the Yemeni army has been engaged in fierce battles to dislodge al Qaeda militants from areas they seized during last year`s political turmoil.
