US drone strike kills al-Qaeda suspects in Yemen

Ref: At least three suspected al-Qaeda militants have been killed by a US drone strike in Yemen’s south-western al-Bayda province, say local officials.
The men were reportedly hit as they travelled in a car in el-Manaseh village on the outskirts of Radda.

Yemeni officials said one of those killed was a senior al-Qaeda operative, Saleh Mohammed al-Ameri, reports the BBC.

The US does not usually confirm drone attacks, but this would be the fourth suspected strike in Yemen in a week.

On Friday, two suspected militants were killed in eastern Hadramout province, while at least five were killed by two strikes on 24 December.
