Suspected US drone kills 3 al-Qaida suspects in Yemen

SANAA– A suspected US drone killed three alleged al-Qaida fighters in an airstrike in the central Shabwa province, Yemeni security officials said Monday. The officials said the overnight attack hit the men’s vehicle as they were travelling near the town of Haban. The officials also said that in the onetime al-Qaida stronghold of Mukalla, on Yemen’s southern coast, troops from the United Arab Emirates and others in the Saudi-led coalition who are primarily fighting Yemen’s anti-government Shiite rebels conducted raids on homes seeking al-Qaida operatives.
