ADEN - At least 11 al-Qaida-linked militants were killed in clashes and an air strike in southern Yemen on Saturday, the Yemeni Defense Ministry said on the sixth day of a government offensive which has killed about 200 people.

Yemeni air force planes destroyed a vehicle in the southern province of Bayda, killing three "leading al-Qaida terrorists," the ministry said on its website.

Ansar al-Sharia (Partisans of Islamic Law), a group affiliated with al-Qaida, said in a statement that three of its militants had been "martyred" in the attack which it said was carried out by a US drone.
