ADEN - Masked gunmen shot dead a senior intelligence officer in southern Yemen on Tuesday, local and security officials said.

Colonel Ahmed Barmadah, deputy head of the Political Security Office, the domestic intelligence service, was leaving his house in the port city of Mukalla in Hadramout province when gunmen on a motorcycle opened fire on him, the officials said.

No one claimed responsibility for the killing but a security official said he suspected that al-Qaida militants, who are battling the US-backed government, were behind it.

Tuesday's attack was the latest in a series of killings targeting security officials and politicians in the impoverished and often chaotic Arabian Peninsula state.
