ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) The governor of Aden was killed in a car bomb attack on Sunday claimed by Islamic State in Yemen's southern port city, where President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi has returned to oversee a war against Iran-allied Houthis. A local official and residents said at least six members of General Jaafar Mohammed Saad's entourage also died in the attack, which targeted the governor as he was headed to work. Several other people were wounded. Islamic State, in a statement posted on a messaging service it uses, said it detonated a car laden with explosives aimed at Saad's convoy in Aden's Tawahi district and promised more operations against "the heads of apostasy in Yemen". A local official and residents said earlier on Sunday a suicide bomber rammed his vehicle into the governor's car.
