Aden:A US drone strike in central Yemen killed two suspected Al-Qaeda members on a motorbike including a local

commander, a security official said Saturday.

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
