Transcript for Drone Kills Militants, Civilians in Yemen
We'll turn now to that big hit against Al Qaeda in Yemen, the u.s.rone strike killing at least nine militants. Martha Raddatz has done an extensive reporting on the regi region. What do we know about these mill militants. These militants have been tracked for some day. In some training camp in Yemen. A U.S. Drone and the drone operators tracked their pickup truck as soon as they left that training camp, hit their pickup truck, ten of those militants as you said were killed, others were injured. Unfortunately, another truck right there as well and three civilians were killed apparently. But they said one of these were an Al Qaeda recruiter in the pickup truck. Another one was some kind of radical preacher. You mentioned the loss of innocent lives, drone strikes are controversial for that region, was this coordinated with the Yemen government? Yes. In fact, Yemen government was the first to announce these drone strikes. Always some sort of consultation with the Yemeni government before they do these strikes. Of course, Martha will have much more on the drone attack plus all of the stories in Washington coming up later on ABC's "This week."
