A drone strike kills at least two people in the northern Yemeni province of Maarib early on Monday, Reuters quoted a military official and an official from the region as saying.

The drone destroyed the car in which they were travelling in the Wadi Abida district of the province, which is east of the capital Sanaa, the officials said, and comes as Yemen's army continues a campaign against militants linked to al-Qaeda in the south.
