"A U.S. drone strike killed five al-Qaeda-linked militants in southern Yemen on Wednesday, Yemeni officials said. An official, who spoke on condition of anonymity according to military rules, said the dawn strike targeted militant hideouts in the al-Arqoub area east of Zinjibar, capital of Abyan province. Islamic radicals seized control of Zinjibar in May, taking advantage of a wider uprising against President Ali Abdullah Saleh to establish a militant-ruled enclave." (10/05/11)
