A US drone strike targeting an Al Qaeda vehicle killed at least three terrorist suspects and wounded two in Yemen Monday evening, a security official said.


"The US drone fired two missiles on a vehicle carrying Al Qaeda militants, killing three terrorists and wounding two others in a desert road in Radhum region in Shabwa province," Xinhua quoted the local security official as saying while requesting anonymity.

Another security official in Shabwa also confirmed the attack and casualties that took place just two hours after the suspected terrorists launched an attack on a military patrol, killing six soldiers in the same region.
