    US drones have reportedly launched two missile strikes in southeastern Yemen, killing at least 10 suspected members of Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, a local division of the terrorist organization.

    At least ten suspected Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula militants, including three local chiefs, have been killed in two strikes by American drones in southeastern Yemen, sources said.

    The attacks, which targeted a vehicle and an arms container, took place at the port of Mukalla in Hadramawt Province.

    The raids are the latest in a series of such assaults in Yemen that have killed twenty-three Al-Qaeda militants in the past three weeks.
