Officials in Yemen say that a US drone strike hit a group traveling to a wedding, killing 13 people. The attack took place in Radda, the capital of Badya province. Radya is thought to be an al-Qaeda strong-hold. A source reported the group was mistaken for al-Qaeda militants. "An air strike missed its target and hit a wedding car convoy, ten people were killed immediately and another five who were injured died after being admitted to the hospital," one security official said.
