"Airstrikes killed 36 suspected al-Qaida militants in southern Yemen on Wednesday, military and medical officials said, as the government pressed on with a campaign to drive out fighters who have overrun several towns. Islamic militants -- some suspected of links to Yemen's al-Qaida branch — seized the towns starting in late May, taking advantage of the political turmoil unleashed by protests against Yemen's longtime ruler."
