SANAA: A Yemeni air raid on Monday in the country's eastern province of Hadramawt killed seven Al-Qaeda militants, including the local military chief, a security official said.

 

The raid struck the group as they met in a "deserted coastal area" some 60 kilometres (35 miles) west of the city of Mukalla, the official said, adding that the militants included Al-Qaeda's local military chief Saleh Abdul Khaleq.

 

In an apparent indication that the air force had been tipped off about the meeting, the official said that militants were in a leafy area "under trees," adding that the raid was conducted by Yemeni warplanes, not US drones.

 

An American drone on Monday killed five Qaeda militants when it struck a convoy in the area of Manaseh, east of the city of Radaa in central Yemen, according to a tribal source. (AFP)
