Work place accident 13 militants killed in Yemen in blast and drone attack
More than 10 suspected al-Qaida operatives were killed by an explosion in a house in south Yemen where they were making bombs and at least three others died in a drone strike, tribal and official sources said on Sunday.
A bomb ripped through a house in the province of al-Bayda on Saturday night, the state news agency, Saba, and a local official said. Three other suspected militants were killed in a drone strike in the central province of Maarib, also on Saturday, tribal sources and the Ministry of Defence said.
The house that was destroyed in al-Bayda had been used for making bombs, an official from the area told Reuters on Sunday. "We heard a massive explosion that terrified people and when we went to the house it was destroyed and everyone there was dead," the official said.
In Maarib, a pilotless plane carried out two strikes against a car, a witness said.
