Militants kill Yemen intelligence official, son

SANAA, Yemen — Security officials say three suspected al-Qaeda militants have killed a top intelligence official and his son in Yemen.

The officials said Col. Ali el-Hadi was shot to death in his car today in the southern Yemeni city of Aden. The officials said el-Hadi’s son, who was shot with him in the car, died of his wounds at a hospital.

The officials, who spoke anonymously in line with regulations, said el-Hadi was in charge of intelligence gathering in Aden.

It is the latest killing of a Yemeni security official in the country on the southern tip of the Arabian Peninsula. The Yemeni military, backed by U.S. support and drone strikes, has tried to crush the operations of al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula there.
