Yemen drone strike kills five

09:26 AEST Sun Aug 5 2012

A suspected US drone strike killed five members of Al-Qaeda travelling in the same vehicle late Saturday in eastern Yemen, a local official told AFP.

"A drone fired two missiles at an all-terrain vehicle... killing its five occupants, all members of al-Qaeda," said the official, who requested anonymity.

The attack happened near the village of Al-Qotn, in the province of Hadramut, he added.

Security forces had deployed around the site of the strike and sealed it off, said witnesses.
