SANAA - An Italian embassy security officer who was kidnapped in Yemen on Sunday was seized by tribesmen and is being detained in the oil-producing province of Maarib, Yemen's Interior Ministry said on Tuesday.

The abductors are demanding compensation for the detention of one of their relatives and the return of land they say they own in the capital Sanaa, a tribal source told Reuters.
