US drone kills 2 Al Qaeda militants in Yemen

SANA, Yemen — A US drone airstrike killed two Al Qaeda militants Monday in a southern town, Yemeni security officials said, the latest in a years-long offensive against the branch the United States considers the violent extremists’ most dangerous.

One of the dead was a mid-level Al Qaeda Yemeni operative who had escaped a drone attack 10 years ago, the officials said. The other was said to be a Jordanian.
