Yemeni Officials Say Drone Strike Killed Al-Qaeda Militants


A suspected U.S. drone strike has killed two men in Yemen who officials say were Al-Qaeda militants.

The strike on April 21 also reportedly destroyed an arms cache in the town of Wadi Abida in central Marib Province.

An unnamed Yemeni security official told journalists that the strike was carried out at dawn. It is the second suspected U.S. drone strike in Yemen in less than a week.

Earlier, officials said an "Al-Qaeda leader" and four militants were killed in a strike south of the Yemeni capital, Sanaa.

The United States usually does not comment on its drone program.
