Gunmen abducted a Westerner identified by a police source as a British oil worker in Sanaa on Monday, hours after three explosions shook the Yemeni capital, underscoring the transitional government's feeble grip on security.A police source said two roadside bombs exploded near the Defence Ministry and Central Bank on Sunday night, while a mortar bomb landed in a district that houses the French embassy and the home of former President Ali Abdullah Saleh.Four people were wounded in the mortar blast, which damaged three buildings and destroyed two cars, witnesses said. In December, a suicide bomb and gun attack near the Defence Ministry killed 52 people.Mass protests in 2011 eventually forced Saleh to end his more than three decades in power, but a political transition process has yet to calm a rebellion by Shiite Muslims in the north and a secessionist movement in the south.
