Air strikes kill 17 militants in Yemen

  • At least 17 suspected al-Qaeda members were killed in the southern Yemeni port town of Aden as air strikes hit the al-Mansoura district. The militants have a strong hold in the district and have carried out several attacks on the local security officers since last July after the recapturing of Aden by the Saudi-led coalition from the Houthi militia, an Iran allied group. At least 20 civilians and militants and three security officials were injured in the air strike.
