ADEN - Yemeni gunmen killed at least two soldiers in an attack on a army contingent assigned to guard oil installations, a local official and tribal sources said on Sunday, after tribesmen warned Norway's DNO (an oil and gas company) to stop operations in the area.

Growing lawlessness in the poor Arabian Peninsula state is an international concern because of Yemen's strategic position next to oil exporter Saudi Arabia and shipping lanes.

A local official said armed tribesmen attacked soldiers near an oil facility operated by DNO late on Saturday.

The official reported two soldiers killed and one injured in the attack. Local tribesmen confirmed the attack but said three soldiers died and six were injured.
