US Drone Attack Kills 8 Civilians in Yemen

TEHRAN (FNA)- An air strike by a US Unmanned Aerial Vehicle killed 8 people in Eastern Yemen.



The victims were on board a vehicle on their way from the Eastern province of Shabwa to Marib when a US drone fired a missile targeting their vehicle, a report by AFP said.

The US military uses assassination drones in several Muslim countries, including Yemen, Somalia, and Pakistan.

The drone strikes fuel widespread anti-American resentment.

A majority of these attacks have been carried out by CIA operatives and US Special Forces command, operating from a base in nearby Dijbouti.
