Drone kills 9 al-Qaeda suspects

  • A drone in southern Yemen killed three civilians and more than nine suspected al-Qaeda militants. An official mentioned that it struck a vehicle that was carrying the militants and another one was carrying civilians nearby. 

    Reports suggest that three other civilians were wounded as well and one of the survivors said there were two strikes. 

    Authorities are claiming the attack to have been carried out by Yemen but some officials said the drone was American. The casualty figures are conflicting and details of the attack were not immediately clear.
