Police Colonel, Aide Killed In Yemen Attack

A police colonel, and his aide, have been killed, after gunmen opened fire on their vehicle, in the southern Yemeni city of Aden.

Gunmen opened fire and killed a police colonel and his aide as their vehicle was passing through a roundabout in the southern Yemeni city of Aden on Saturday, a local security official and witnesses said.

The attack on Col. Salem al-Milqat, police chief of Tawahi district, occurred in the restive district of al-Mansoura which has seen several assaults on local security officials.

Yemen’s embattled government, despite being supported by a Saudi-led coalition, has been forced out of the capital Sana’a by Iran-allied Houthi rebels and is now based in Aden but struggles to impose its authority even there.
