Four suspected al Qaeda members killed in drone strike in Yemen
DUBAI- Four suspected members of al Qaeda's Yemen branch, including a local commander, were killed on Tuesday by a drone strike on their vehicle east of the capital Sanaa, local officials said.


It was the latest in a series of strikes by pilotless planes, believed to be operated by the United States, in war-torn Yemen.


The officials said the vehicle was travelling on a main road between the Marib governorate and al-Jawf when it was attacked.


Two senior al Qaeda members were killed in September in a suspected U.S. drone strike in the central province of al-Bayda, the third of its kind in central Yemen in one week.
