Briton killed by south Yemen car bomb: police
A Briton was killed in a car bombing on Wednesday in the main southern Yemeni city of Aden, a police official said.
The Briton, who was the head of a shipping company, was killed by a bomb in his car in the Moalla area near a hotel where his company has an office, the official said.
Police did not comment on the motive of the attack.
Witness Abdullah al-Sharafi told AFP: "I head the explosion, I hurried there, and I found the car in pieces and a charred body."
Attacks are relatively rare in Aden, which remains generally calm despite deadly unrest in other southern provinces that have seen repeated clashes between suspected Al-Qaeda militants and security forces.
