Yemen says it foils planned al-Qaida attack in Aden

ADEN, Yemen - Yemen said on Monday its security forces had foiled a planned al-Qaida attack in the southern province of Aden.
The announcement came three days after a suicide bomber killed four soldiers and a civilian and wounded 16 people in Aden. A local newspaper said on Monday that investigators had identified the suicide bomber as a Saudi national.
Yemen's state news agency Saba quoted a security source as saying six people "among some of the most dangerous elements" of al-Qaida were captured while trying to infiltrate into the province, which includes a port and oil refinery.
The report described the intended target of the thwarted attack as "vital and economic installations", giving no further details.
