Suspected al Qaeda-linked gunmen
killed a Yemeni working for Total on Tuesday and wounded a Frenchman and a
second Yemeni working for the French oil group, a Total security official said.
The attack took place as the men were
driving from an oil field in eastern Hadramout province to an airport in the
town of Seiyun.
"They were on their way to Seiyun
airport. They were 2 km (1.2 miles) northeast of Seiyun when the car came under
attack by five masked gunmen with rifles," the Total official said.
