A bomb killed four South Korean tourists and their guide, officials said, the latest such attack targeting foreigners visiting a country that has both famous historic sites and a strong Al Qaeda presence.

The attack occurred as the tourists were posing for photographs near the ancient fortress city of Shibam, Yemeni security officials said.

A Yemeni guide was also killed in the attack, which wounded four foreigners and an unspecified number of Yemenis.
