Yemen Airstrike Leads to Death of ‘Al-Qaeda Members’
The use of U.S drones to fight al-Qaeda linked groups has been controversial lately in Yemen, Afghanistan and Pakistan. The Yemeni government declines the knowledge of U.S airstrikes taking place in their country. On Sunday’s drone attack, a local government official in Shabwa has confirmed the death of two al-Qaeda members as they travelled in their car. One of them being Al-Qasaa, who escaped from prison in 2005 for the attack on USS Cole which killed 17 U.S sailors.
