SANAA, Yemen (AP) - Yemeni military officials say seven
al-Qaida-linked militants have been killed in two airstrikes in the
south. It's the latest in a Yemen offensive against the Islamist
militants.

Officials say a suspected U.S. drone struck a pickup truck,
killing three al-Qaida-linked militants in Shabwa province, where
the group controls several cities. The U.S. has carried out drone
strikes against al-Qaida in Yemen in the past.

Mohammed Bindighar, who lives near the location of the Monday
attack, says that for the past five months he's seen U.S. drones
circling overheard almost daily. The U.S. rarely comments on its
operations.

Also Monday, officials say a Yemeni air strike killed four
al-Qaida militants near Lawder city in southern Abyan province.

All the officials spoke on condition of anonymity in line with
military regulations.
