BERLIN - Germany's Foreign Minister says two German aid workers and a Yemeni employee have been killed in an insurgent attack in Yemen.

The attack Thursday at a heavily guarded compound in the capital of Sanaa also claimed the lives of at least 18 Yemeni soldiers. German Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle said the victims worked for Germany's state-linked GIZ aid organization.
