US drone attack kills 9 in Yemen



U-S drone attacks have killed nine people in Yemen over the past two days

The latest airstrike claimed five lives in the south of the Arab country on Thursday. The previous drone strike took place on Wednesday in southeastern Yemen, killing four people. Local officials say those killed in the air attacks were al-Qaeda militants.

The U-S has carried out large numbers of airstrikes against other nations using its unmanned aerial vehicles in the past years. Washington says the attacks target militants. However, many of the victims have turned out to be civilians. The U-N has criticized the U-S over its use of drones for targeted killings.
