ADEN: A drone strike Thursday near the south Yemen city of Jaar killed at least seven Al-Qaeda suspects, a local official told AFP.
"A drone, likely American, fired several rockets at a group of Al-Qaeda members northwest of Jaar killing all of them," said the official, adding that seven bodies had so far been recovered.
The United States is the only country that operates drones in the region. (AFP)
