ADEN - Yemeni tribesmen kidnapped a Swiss citizen working for the Red Cross in southern Abyan province on Monday, a Yemeni security source said.

The aid worker was taken from a vehicle in the city of Jar and there had been no demands from the armed tribesmen, the security source said.

Kidnappings of Westerners in Yemen are mostly carried out by al-Qaida militants and tribesmen.
