A top Yemeni officer linked to the Shiite militia opposed to President Abed Rabbou Mansour Hadi escaped an assassination bid near the southern city of Aden, a security official said Friday.Four people were killed in an ambush on the Lahj-Taiz road but General Abdel Hafedh al-Sakkaf, the special forces chief in Aden, escaped harmed, said the official from Lahj.He said the attack took place in Al-Athawir as Sakkaf fled Aden overnight in a convoy to Lahj, on its way towards militia-held Sanaa.The attack came as forces loyal to Hadi tightened their control over Aden where the situation was calm early Friday after a day of deadly clashes.
