SANAA - Two suspected members of al Qaeda's Yemen branch were killed on Sunday by what local officials believed was a US drone strike.

If confirmed, it would be the first such attack since US President Donald Trump assumed office on Friday.The men were killed when a missile hit the vehicle in which they were traveling in southern al-Bayda province, said the officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity.



The United States has conducted dozens of drone strikes throughout President Barack Obama's presidency to combat al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, regarded as one of the global militant group's most dangerous branches.
