Three al Qaida operatives have been killed in a suspected US air strike on Yemen's southern coast.

An unmanned aircraft hit the operatives as they were driving a car in Shabwa province, said officials.

None of the bodies have been identified.

Al Qaida has exploited the chaos of Yemen's civil war, seizing land in the south and east of the country.

The US has long considered the group in the Arabian Peninsula to be among the most dangerous branches of the worldwide terror network.
