US missile kills three al-Qaida militants in Yemen

US missile kills three al-Qaida militants in Yemen
A missile fired by a US drone has killed three al-Qaida militants who were driving in a vehicle in the country's south, Yemeni officials said.

The officials said one of those killed was an operative close to the al-Qaida leader in Yemen, Saad al-Awlaki. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorised to speak to the press.

The officials said the missile killed everyone in the moving vehicle and left their bodies charred. The strike happened in the southern province of Shabwa.

Washington has intensified its attacks on al-Qaida in Yemen since President Donald Trump took office earlier this year, according to AP.
