U.S. Drone Strike Kills two Qaida Militants
2012-12-29
[An Nahar] A U.S. drone strike in the Yemeni town of Shehr in the eastern province of Hadramawt killed two suspected members of al-Qaeda on Friday, a local official said.
This is the same strike generically described as "an airstrike" in the Yemen Post article...
"Two members of al-Qaeda on a cycle of violence was struck down in his prime when targeted by a missile fired by a U.S. drone," the official said on condition of anonymity.

On Monday, four other members of al-Qaeda were killed and another maimed by three missiles fired at cycle of violences in the same town.

Those missiles were also fired by an "American drone" in the center of Shehr, a town east of the lovely provincial capital Mukalla, an official had said.

Hiding out from his grammar teacher. Two members ... was struck down in his prime. What's up with that?
