A US drone strike on Wednesday on a house and car in Yemen’s restive southeastern Shabwa province killed nine people, believed to be al-Qaida militants, a tribal source said.

“A US drone struck a house where al-Qaida militants were meeting, and a car nearby,” in the town of Azzan in Shabwa province early in the morning, a tribal source told AFP on condition of anonymity.

He said “nine people were killed in the explosions.”

A local medic confirmed the toll.

Several hundred al-Qaida militants are believed to have fled to Azzan in the hours before two al-Qaida strongholds in Yemen’s southern Abyan province, Jaar and Zinjibar, were recaptured by the army Tuesday.
