Yemen: US drone strike kills three in Shabwa

31st Jul 2013

A suspected US drone strike killed three people in Yemen at dawn on Tuesday in the second such attack in three days, a tribal source told AFP.

“The car in which the three were travelling – two Yemenis and a Saudi – was blown to pieces and all of them were killed outright,” the source said.

The men were suspected to have been militants, but there is no way to confirm that. US drone strikes in Yemen, Somalia and Pakistan have killed hundreds of civilians over the past few years according to studies.

The attack Tuesday struck in Shabwa, a southern province that borders Abyan, where Saturday night’s strike hit.

“It was carried out by a US drone,” the source said, speaking on condition of anonymity.

The strike targeted two vehicles on the road between Al-Aram and Al-Saeed.

“Only one vehicle was hit and the other got away,” the source said.

The United States, the only country to operate drones in the region, has sharply increase its use of them in Yemen over the past two years.

US drones strikes in Yemen nearly tripled in 2012 compared to 2011, from 18 to 53, according to the New America Foundation, a Washington-based think-tank.

A US drone strike killed six suspected people in neighboring Abyan province on Saturday night, a Yemeni military source told AFP.
