SAN'A, Yemen — Yemeni officials say tribal gunmen have kidnapped two American tourists and are demanding the release of a jailed tribesman for the pair.

The US Embassy in San'a says it doesn't have any information about the kidnapping.

Security officials, a taxi driver and tribesmen say the two — a man and a woman — were seized Monday as they were traveling west of the capital in al-Hudaydah province.
