Sana'a - A Yemeni air raid on Monday in the country's eastern province of Hadramawt killed seven Al-Qaeda militants, including the local military chief, a security official said.

The raid struck the group as they met in a "deserted coastal area" some 60km west of the city of Mukalla, the official said, adding that the militants included al-Qaeda's local military chief Saleh Abdul Khaleq.
