Drone strike in Yemen targets al Qaeda

Monday, August 5, 2013 - 10:49pm

A drone strike Tuesday in Yemen targeted al Qaeda members, a Yemeni official told CNN.

It is unclear whether the strike was related to the heightened security alert in the country after U.S. officials intercepted a message from al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri to operatives in Yemen telling them to "do something."

The official said it was the fourth drone strike in the past 10 days.
