Today in the full scale robotic assault on Yemen:
A suspected U.S. drone attacked a convoy of “Islamist militants” in eastern Yemen overnight, killing three people, a local security official said on Thursday, as Washington intensifies its aerial campaign against fighters linked to al Qaeda.
The official said the rocket hit the convoy in the Shibam area of the eastern Hadramout province and there was a series of explosions from a vehicle believed to be laden with explosives.
Residents of the area told Reuters its three passengers were members of a militant cell. The accounts could not be independently verified.
