Yemen

The USA fires a missile at a car in Yemen killing 6 people it accuses of belonging to the terrorist group, Al Qa'ida.

A report in Jane's Defence Weekly states that "it doesn't seem they were given a chance to surrender. They were taken out Israeli-style". Adrian Hamilton, a UK journalist, writes "just because [USA] officials say the men killed in a car by the CIA were guilty, doesn't mean they were. Only the due process of law can decide that".

The USA has 800 troops and an an unspecified number of special forces in the region based in Djibouti.
