Seven suspected al Qaeda members killed by drone
This is the latest of a slew of U.S. drone attacks in the nation, an al-Qaeda stronghold, in recent days.
Just Tuesday, five were killed by drone strikes near Yemen’s border with Saudi Arabia, and the day prior, four others were killed by drone attack in central Yemen. Meanwhile, weekend drone strikes killed another six, according to media reports.
The attacks come at a time when the United Nations is calling for investigation of the impacts of drone kills on civilian populations in Yemen, Afghanistan, Somalia, Pakistan and the Palestinian territories.
