At least four men suspected of being al Qaeda members were killed in what a local official said was a U.S. drone strike on Islamist militants in northern Yemen on Sunday.
It was a rare attack on al Qaeda-linked targets in northern Yemen, an area dominated by Shi’ite Muslim Houthi rebels battling Yemeni government forces for control of the rugged mountainous region.
The official said that a drone attacked two houses in the Abu Jabara area in Saada Province, killing four people.
