Yemen official says 7 suspected militants killed
Two separate airstrikes in Yemen’s south killed seven suspected militants Saturday, a Yemeni security official said.
The official said three suspected militants were killed when an airstrike hit their vehicle north of Ahwar town, in the southern Abyan province. The other airstrike hit a gathering of militants in the same region, killing four, the official said.
The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media. It was not clear if the airstrikes were carried out by U.S. drones, commonly used to target suspected militants in Yemen, or government jets.
