US terror drone kills 2 in eastern Yemen: Officials

A US assassination drone attack in Yemen has left two people dead in the eastern province of Hadhramout, local officials say.

The officials said on Wednesday that the drone fired at least one missile on a car in the al-Qatan region.

The attack, which completely destroyed the vehicle, killed the two al-Qaeda suspects, they added.

The United States has come under fire for increasing its drone attacks in Yemen, where the people have held many demonstrations to condemn the violation of their national sovereignty.

Washington has stepped up its assassination drone operations in Yemen over the past few years.

The US claims it is targeting militants but witness reports and figures provided by local officials indicate that civilians are the main victims of the attacks.
