ADEN  – An apparent US drone strike killed six suspected Al-Qaeda militants overnight, a Yemeni military source told AFP on Sunday.

The six suspects were travelling in a two-vehicle convoy near Mahfad in the southern province of Abyan, much of which was held by the jihadists before an army counter-offensive last year, the source said, speaking on condition of anonymity.
