Suspected US drone kills 3 in Yemen

30 July 2013, 16:37

Sanaa - A Yemeni military official says a suspected US drone strike has killed three alleged al-Qaeda militants in one of the group's strongholds in the south of the country.

The official said the attack took place early on Tuesday in the town of Saeed in Shabwa province and targeted a car carrying the suspected militants. The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity in line with regulations, gave no further details.

But tribal leaders told The Associated Press by telephone from Shabwa that one of the militants is a known Saudi member of al-Qaeda's branch in Yemen. They spoke anonymously because they don't want to be involved.

Washington considers al-Qaeda's Yemeni branch one of the world's most dangerous terrorist groups.

Another suspected drone strike killed six alleged militants on Saturday.
