A local official told Reuters suspected al-Qaeda militants shot dead a Yemeni intelligence officer on Saturday in the southern province of Lahej in the latest of a series of attacks on military targets. Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula has carried out several hit-and-run attacks since the Yemeni army drove it from its southern strongholds in Abyan and Shabwa provinces last month. The dead man, Colonel Nasser al-Issai, was the latest in a string of army and intelligence officers to have been killed in Yemen.
