A SUSPECTED US drone strike has killed two alleged militants in southern Yemen, military officials say, making it the ninth such strike in just two weeks.

The strike in Lahj province wounded two other militants, one of them seriously, the officials said.

The four had been travelling in a car in the area of el-Askariya.

The officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said it was the first time a US drone fired on this area of Lahj.

In total, there have been nine suspected US drone strikes in Yemen since July 27.

The drone attacks in that two-week period have killed a total of 38 suspected militants in Yemen, which is the Arab world’s most impoverished country.
