WASHINGTON - A US service member was killed and three were wounded in a raid on al-Qaida headquarters in Yemen on Saturday, the Pentagon said.

It said 14 members of the militant group al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula died in the raid, which netted "information that will likely provide insight into the planning of future terror plots," the US military said in a statement on Sunday.

"We are deeply saddened by the loss of one of our elite service members," said General Joseph Votel, commander of US Central Command.

"The sacrifices are very profound in our fight against terrorists who threaten innocent peoples across the globe."
