SANAA, Yemen (AP) — An airstrike killed nine al-Qaida fighters Wednesday in southern Yemen as the military maintained pressure on the terror group a day after government troops backed by armed tribesmen recaptured two militant strongholds, officials said.

The military officials said the strike destroyed a car parked near a house in the town of Azan in Shabwa province, an al-Qaida stronghold. They said the missile was believed to have been fired by a drone.
