ADEN - The commander of Yemen's southern military region was killed in a suicide attack in Aden early on Monday, medics and a security official said, after the army drove al-Qaida-linked militants from their strongholds in the area.

The bomber, who was wearing an explosives belt, targeted Major General Salem Ali Qatan as he was on his way to work, witnesses said.
