Yemen bomb plot: A U.S. drone strike in Yemen Thursday killed six alleged Al Qaeda militants. It was the sixth US drone attack in 10 days. Is the US working to disrupt an Al Qaeda bomb plot?
The strike — the sixth by a U.S. drone over the past 10 days — came as Yemen remained on high alert following threats of a terror attack targeting Western and Yemeni government interests.
So far, about 29 suspected militants have been killed by unmanned U.S. aircraft in an apparent stepped-up drone war in Yemen. While the United States acknowledges its drone program in Yemen, it does not confirm individual strikes or release information on how many have been carried out.
