Four Arrested after Briton Killed in Yemen

Four Yemeni suspects have been arrested in connection with a car-bomb attack in the southern port of Aden that killed a British businessman on Wednesday, security officials said on Saturday.

The four suspects lived in the Moalla neighborhood where the attack took place, the security officials said, without ruling out further arrests.

Reports in Britain said the man killed, David Mockett, was in his 60s and a marine surveyor.

An intelligence officer told Agence France Presse that the attack "carries the fingerprints of al-Qaida."
