A suspected US drone strike killed at least two people in Yemen’s southern Shabwa province, the latest in a surge since Washington warned of possible attacks by al-Qaeda in the region, al-Akhbar reported.


At least 37 people have been killed in just over two weeks in a campaign targeting insurgents linked to al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP).

That campaign has been stepped up after intercepted communication between AQAP leader, Nasser al Wuhayshi and Ayman al-Zawahri, head of al-Qaeda, along with other intelligence prompted Washington to close 19 US embassies this month.
