The governor was killed along with six bodyguards

Aden: The governor of Yemen's Aden province was killed along with six bodyguards after a bomb struck his vehicle in the country's temporary capital on Sunday, an official source said.

Major General Jafar Mohammed Saad, the newly appointed governor of Aden, was killed while passing through Tawahi district towards his workplace, a report quoted a military official as saying.

The attack was the second in recent months against high-level officials of the exiled Yemeni government.

In October, a hotel in Aden where Yemeni Prime Minister Khaled Bahah and his cabinet were living was attacked by a bomb attack inspired by the Islamic State. Bahah and his cabinet members escaped the attack unharmed.
