2 Militants Killed, Suspicious Ship Seized in Yemen

Two Al-Qaeda militants were killed in an airstrike in Yemen's Hadramout province where several militants have been killed by US drones in the past few days, state media reported on Friday.

The militants were targeted while on their motorbikes in Alshihr city, it said, adding that the two were targeted in separate attacks.

"Their bodies which were completely burned and taken to forensic experts to identify the militants," the website quoted local sources as saying.

In the past few days, several AQAP militants have been killed in Hadramout by US drones and Yemeni warplanes as the authorities are continuing a massive hunt for militants across the republic.

This year, Al-Qaeda has received severe blows since the army drove its operatives out of their strongholds which were seized last year in Abyan and Shabwa provinces.

Separately, the border guard seized a suspicious ship off the Midi port in Hajja province, the website said.

"15 Syrian and 2 armed Somali sailors were onboard the ship, which was carrying 4 tonnes of coal," it quoted a statement by the local security authorities. "The ship was en route to the Saudi port of Jazan coming from Somalia," it added.

A panel has been formed to check the cargo onboard the ship.

In recent months, Yemen has seized several arms cargoes, mainly Turkish pistols, at the Hodeida and Aden ports.

The seizures come amid alarming security disorder affecting the West-backed power-transition.
