ADEN, Yemen - Two suspected al-Qaida-linked insurgents were killed in a drone strike in Yemen's eastern region of Hadramout on Friday, a local security official said.

The two men were riding a motorcycle west of the coastal town of al-Sheher when the pilotless aircraft fired at them, the official told Reuters, declining to be named. He gave no further details of the identity of those killed.

On Monday, at least five people were killed in two drone strikes in Yemen, one of them also in Hadramout, the first such attacks in several weeks.
