Yemen: U.S. Strike Kills Local Al-Qaeda Media Chief

An American drone strike in southern Yemen has killed seven al-Qaeda-linked militants, including the media chief for the group's Yemeni branch.

The Yemeni Defense Ministry has identified the slain media chief as Egyptian-born Ibrahim al-Bana.

Tribal elders in the area say the air strike late on October 14 in the southeastern province of  Shabwa also killed the son of a prominent  U.S.-born cleric slain in a similar attack last month.

The missile attacks target al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, which U.S. officials say is the global terror network's most active and most dangerous branch.
