A drone strike in Yemen killed six Al-Qaeda members Thursday, a tribal source said, a day after Sanaa reported it had foiled a militant plot to storm a Western-run oil terminal.

The dawn attack, presumed to have been launched by an American drone, was the sixth of its kind since the end of July.

It targeted two cars bearing members of Al-Qaeda in the Maarib region east of the capital, the source said, and came as a terror alert kept US and some Western missions in the region and farther afield closed.
