ADEN, Dec 6 : A car bomb claimed by the Islamic State group on Sunday killed the governor of Yemen's second city Aden, a day after a visit by the UN's envoy to press for long-delayed peace talks.
A statement posted on Twitter by the jihadist group said it was behind a blast that hit the convoy of Jaafar Saad in the Tawahi neighbourhood of the major port city, killing him and eight of his bodyguards.
In a statement carried by the official Saba news agency, the head of security in Aden General Mohamed Mussad confirmed Saad's death and said six of his guards were also killed.    ?AFP
