ADEN - Two people were killed in eastern Yemen on Tuesday in what local residents said was probably an attack by a US drone on al Qaeda members, and Saudi-led coalition warships appeared to be preparing to move against a port held by militants.

Residents said a pilotless plane struck a car travelling on the outskirts of Sayoun, the second largest city in Hadramout province, on Tuesday evening. The strike blew the car apart and its occupants were burned beyond recognition.

The United States has acknowledged using drones but declines to comment on specific attacks.
