Drone strike kills six suspected militants in Yemen

By Hakim Almasmari

A U.S. drone strike on a vehicle just outside the capital of Sanaa killed six suspected al-Qaeda militants Wednesday night, three Yemeni Defense Ministry officials told CNN.

The strike took place in Al-Masna'a village of Khawlan district, 35 kilometers southeast of the capital. Three of the killed were senior members of al Qaeda, two of whom were Saudi nationals, the officials said.

Security teams were deployed to the scene, one of the officials said.

"Yemen needs stability and these militants must be killed if Yemen has a chance to stabilize, " said a Defense Ministry official who spoke on condition of anonymity because he is not authorized to talk to media.

    Those filthy creeps who did this dastardly act need to be indicted, taken to the I.C.C. and prosecuted. This butchery is a terrible reflection on this country and us as well. Aren't we supposed to be a Christian country? By using those cursed drones, we're proving to be otherwise!!!

      Ooooops sorry above post was for the different article. I say not just in Yemen these militants must be killed, but Pakistan, Afghanistan, Syria, and now Mali and Algeria needs to kill these militants too for their stability.
