SANAA, Yemen (AP) — Yemeni army officials say a U.S. drone strike has killed two suspected al-Qaida militants east of the capital, sparking a retaliatory attack on a military checkpoint.
It's the third suspected U.S. drone strike in less than a week in Yemen.
The officials in Marib province say at least three other militants were wounded in Sunday's strike on a house in Wadi Adeeda that was used to hide weapons. Officials spoke on condition of anonymity in line with regulations.
Yemen's Defense Ministry confirmed a drone strike but didn't specify who was behind it. The U.S. doesn't usually comment on such attacks.
A few hours later, officials say al-Qaida fighters attacked a military checkpoint in the same area, killing two soldiers. A militant was killed in the shootout
