Yemen police chief wounded in Aden suicide bombing

By Agencies

A provincial police chief in southern Yemen was wounded after a suicide bomb attack on his convoy in the port city of Aden late Wednesday, a security official said.

Colonel Adel Al Halemi was wounded and a number of other people killed or hurt when the assailant blew up his vehicle near the Lahj police chief's home in  Aden, the official said, without giving more details on the casualties.

The attack follows a string of killings and bombings against government targets in southern Yemen.

Pro-government forces backed by a Saudi-led coalition have since July recaptured Aden, Lahj and three other southern provinces from Houthi rebels.
