Six Al-Qaeda elements killed in drone strike in Yemen
The official said the strike happened after sundown and targeted a vehicle in Bayda province.
“An unmanned drone — likely American — bombed the group’s vehicle in the area of Qayfa, where Al Qaeda is active,” the official said
Al Qaeda’s global network remains “remarkably resilient”, posing more of a threat in some regions than the militant Islamic State group, UN sanctions monitors said in a report last week.
The report sent to the Security Council said that the Yemen-based Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) served as a communications hub for the UN-designated terror group as a whole.
