Image #: 21062499    Tribesmen stand on the rubble of a building destroyed by a U.S. drone air strike, that targeted suspected al Qaeda militants in Azan of the southeastern Yemeni province of Shabwa February 3, 2013. Abdulrahman al-Awlaki, the son of slain U.S.-born cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, and six al Qaeda militants, were killed in a strike on this building on October 14, 2011, tribal elders said. U.S. drones have launched almost daily raids on suspected al Qaeda militants in Yemen over the past two weeks, and air strikes have aggravated discontent among Yemenis, who say the strikes pose a threat to civilians. Abdulrahman al-Awlaki was 16 years old and also a U.S. citizen. His father had been killed in a drone two weeks earlier, in September 2011.
