WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Pentagon said on Thursday that a U.S. military strike in Yemen killed four al Qaeda militants, the seventh such strike in the country this month.
In a statement, the Pentagon said the strike against Yemen’s al Qaeda branch, known as Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), was carried out near al-Bayda.
“No civilians were present and therefore none were injured or killed as a result of the strike,” the statement said.
