The strike came as UAE-backed Yemeni special forces launched a new offensive against Al-Qaeda in
southeast Yemen, losing two soldiers.
The unmanned aircraft struck the motorcycle carrying the men in Bayda province at around midnight
Friday, the official told AFP.
"The strike targeted two Al-Qaeda militants, local commander Abu Hussein al-Theriya and another,
Dawoud al-Sanaani, as they rode through the province," he said.AP
