U.S. Drone Attack Kills 6

At least six suspected al Qaeda–associated militants appear to have been killed by U.S. drones Saturday in Yemen following the announcement earlier this week that U.S. officials prevented an attempted suicide bombing against the U.S. by members of Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula. Yemeni officials reportedly killed 15 other potential Qaeda militants today as well. Yemeni civilians were warned by leaflets dropped by Air Force planes to vacate the area ahead of the offensive.
