US targets Al-Qaeda in second day of Yemen strikes

US targets Al-Qaeda in second day of Yemen strikesUS warplanes pounded Al-Qaeda targets in Yemen for a second straight day Friday, killing eight militants, security and tribal sources said, as Washington steps up its air war against the jihadists. The Pentagon said the past two days had seen it carry out “somewhere over 30” strikes against Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), conducted in partnership with the Yemeni government. “This is part of a plan to go after this very real threat and ensure that they are defeated and denied the opportunity to plot and carry out terrorist attacks from ungoverned spaces,” Pentagon spokesman Navy Captain Jeff Davis said, noting America would continue to attack AQAP.
