A car bombing claimed by Daesh (ISIS) Sunday killed the governor of Yemen's second city Aden, a day after the U.N.'s envoy visited to press for long-delayed peace talks.Saad was only recently appointed governor, and was known to be close to President Abed Rabbou Mansour Hadi who returned to Aden last month after several months in exile in Riyadh.Saad's killing represents another blow for Hadi, who has struggled to secure the city since his forces and allies launched a widespread operation in July to retake five southern provinces – including Aden – from the Houthi rebels.The bombing came a day after the U.N. envoy to Yemen held talks with Hadi in Aden aimed at kickstarting peace talks.Sunday, police Colonel Antar al-Bakhshi was shot dead by unknown assailants in the Inmaa district, west of Aden, a security official said.
