Aden, June 13: About three suspected al-Qaeda were when a US drone strike bombed a car in Yemen's southeastern province of Shabwa on Sunday night, a military official.
"A four-wheel drive vehicle was struck by missiles fired from a US drone in the tribal area of Haban in Shabwa province, killing three al-Qaeda militants at the scene," Xinhua quoted the Yemeni military source as saying.
The military official said that all the three dead militants were known for their links to the latest terror attacks that struck southern Yemeni provinces.
Residents said that vehicle was completely destroyed in the area and no one escaped from the American attack.
