Yemen's interior ministry says 55 al-Qaida militants were killed in an hours-long series of strikes on a training camp operated by the group in the country's south. The statement Monday said three senior members were among those killed, without elaborating. The operation, which kicked off Sunday and is believed to have involved U.S. drones, targeted a sprawling training camp of al-Qaida in the rugged mountains of Mahfad.
