Two attackers on a motorbike in a south Yemen town gunned down an officer who featured on an al-Qaeda hit list of policemen to be killed, a security official said on Monday.

One of the attackers drove the motorbike while the other shot the criminal investigations officer, Ghazi al-Samawi, the official said.

The attack took place Sunday night in the town of Zinjibar in Abyan province.

Witnesses said the attackers yelled "Allahu Akbar" (God is greatest) as they carried out the killing and then sped off.
