Yemen: 14 civilians killed in errant airstrike

The Yemeni government, with US support, is waging a campaign against al Qaeda militants, who are increasingly active in the country.



Sana’a: Military officials and tribesmen say an attack by Yemeni fighter planes has mistakenly hit vehicles carrying civilians travelling south of the capital, killing 14, including women and children.
The military officials said Sunday’s airstrikes in Radda in the province of Bayda were based on faulty intelligence that the passengers were al Qaeda members. Missiles fired from the warplanes hit two vehicles carrying local residents returning to their villages.

Tribesman Sheik Ahmed Ali said the dead included three women and three children.
