Gunmen kill intelligence chief in southern Yemen

SANAA, Yemen (AP) - Security officials in Yemen say militants have killed an intelligence chief in a southern province.

The security officials say that two gunmen on a motorcycle shot and killed Intelligence Gen. Rishad al-Kaladi as he was leaving a restaurant in Hadramawt province's capital.

The officials spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to journalists.

Militants have carried out numerous similar security leaders killings in recent years.

The southern part of Yemen is home to one of the country's rebel movements. In the past month, anger among tribes caused President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi to send moderators to the south and offer a settlement through a tribal committee. Earlier this week, two protesters died when security forces dispersed a protest in Aden.
