Authorities said that three explosive devices were detonated near the wall of the main police station in Sayoun of the Hadhramout province, some 900 kilometres south-east of the capital Sana'a.
A massive manhunt was launched for the suspected attackers, said the officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity.
This was the second attack against police forces in the province, after one soldier was killed and seven wounded when rocket-propelled grenades were fired at two checkpoints in the province on April 4. The terrorist network al-Qaeda later claimed responsibility for the attack.
Hadhramout was the scene of an attack on a convoy of Belgian tourists that left two Belgian women and two Yemeni drivers dead on January 18. Al-Qaeda also claimed responsibility for that attack.
The attack on the Belgian tourists was the second against Western tourists in the Arabian peninsula country within six months.
In July 2007, eight Spanish tourists were killed when a suicide bomber linked to al-Qaeda drove a car packed with explosives into their convoy in the central province of Marib.
