Yemeni army intelligence officer Lieutenant Colonel Mohammed al-Saidi died Wednesday after a suicide bomber detonated his car in a market in the southern city of Ataq, according to AFP. Another man was seriously injured in the attack as well.
Wednesday's deaths, along with last Friday's bombings killing military personnel in Shawba province, represents the largest wave of violence in the country since the Sanaa boming in May 2012 in which approximately 100 soldiers were killed.
