Car bomb kills Yemen security official, al Qaeda suspected

Travellers are advised to avoid all travel to Yemen, especially to the southern regions. Random armed attacks, suicide bombing in Sana'a, shooting of foreigners and recent kidnapping incidents involving foreigners have created political and personal insecurity.
