Car Bomb Kills Governor in Aden, Yemeni Security Official Says

“The Islamic State claimed responsibility for a powerful car bomb that killed the provincial governor in the southern port of Aden early Sunday, raising concerns that hard-line Sunni militants were gaining a foothold in one of Yemen’s largest cities.

The governor, Jaafar Mohamed Saad, was the most senior official to be killed in Aden during a series of assassinations that have signaled the growing strength of Sunni extremists in Yemen’s nine-month civil war. The extremists include militants with Al Qaeda, but more ominously, analysts say, also an increasingly assertive and lethal branch of the transnational Islamic State.”
