SANAA — An airstrike Wednesday killed 15 al Qaeda-linked militants in their training camp in the country’s south, Yemeni military officials said. The airstrike resembled earlier U.S. drone attacks, but the U.S. did not comment.

Two civilians and a military officer also were killed in the fighting.
