"Three suspected air strikes hit militant targets in southern Yemen Monday night and Tuesday morning, killing at least nine people believed to be linked to al Qaeda, Yemeni security officials said. A senior U.S. official confirmed to CNN Tuesday that a strike was carried out by a mix of drones and manned aircraft under the control of the Defense Department, not the CIA. Both drones and manned aircraft fired." (01/31/12)
