Drone in Yemen kills 9 suspected al-Qaeda fighters
A Yemeni military official says an American drone strike has killed nine suspected al-Qaeda militants and inadvertently killed and wounded some civilians.


The official said the early Saturday raid targeted a car carrying the militants in the Sawmaa area in the al-Bayda province at the time another car was nearby carrying civilians. At least six civilians were killed and wounded, the official said on condition of anonymity in line with military regulations. (AP)
