ADEN - Local officials and residents in Yemen's southern Lahj Province said a drone destroyed a vehicle traveling on a mountain road late on Saturday evening killing its two occupants and bringing to 15 the death toll from four strikes in three days.

The local officials and residents said the vehicle, which was traveling between Yafe and Radfan, was believed to be carrying arms and its occupants were suspected members of al-Qaida.

On Friday an air strike in Yemen's eastern Hadramout Province killed five suspected militants, while two strikes in Hadramout and Marib Province killed eight militants on Thursday.

Yemen said on Wednesday it had foiled a plot by al-Qaida to seize the port of Mukalla, the capital of Hadramout and a major oil and gas export hub.
