SANAA - A Spanish embassy guard in Yemen has gone missing while driving to the airport to fly home to Spain for a holiday, a Western diplomat in the capital Sanaa said on Sunday.

"We lost of track of him on Thursday. The only thing we know is that he never took the plane to Madrid. We don't know yet if he was kidnapped - no tribes have contacted us - but obviously it is very disturbing," the diplomat told Reuters.

Spain's Interior Minister Jorge Fernandez Diaz told Spanish radio he was aware of the disappearance of the 38-year-old Spaniard but could not give any further details.
