Four al-Qaeda militants killed in Yemen airstrike, says Pentagon

WASHINGTON: The Pentagon said on Thursday that a US military strike in Yemen killed four al Qaeda militants, the seventh such strike in the country this month.

In a statement, the Pentagon said the strike against Yemen’s al Qaeda branch, known as Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), was carried out near al-Bayda.

“No civilians were present and therefore none were injured or killed as a result of the strike,” the statement said.
