Yemen policeman killed by Aden bomb

A Yemeni policeman was killed and five others wounded on Saturday when a bomb exploded at their post in the southern city of Aden, a security official said.

The station commander was among those wounded in the blast, in the Kolou neighbourhood of the violence-plagued city.

The source did not say who was suspected of having planted the bomb.

The south and east of Yemen have been insecure amid a political crisis that has rocked the country for the past nearly nine months months with mass street protests calling for President Ali Abdullah Saleh's ouster.
