ADEN (Reuters) - Gunmen kidnapped Saudi Arabia's deputy consul from outside his residence in the southern Yemeni port city of Aden on Wednesday, a Yemeni security official said.

Police in the city's Mansoura district said the gunmen snatched Abdallah al-Khalidi as he was about to get into his car and sped off with him in another vehicle.
