Suspected militants shot dead three Yemeni airforce pilots on Wednesday as they travelled to a southern airbase jointly used with U.S. forces to launch attacks on the group.
The pilots were heading to the Al Anad air base in Lahj province when one of two militants riding a motor-bike opened fire on them with a machine gun, a security official said.
"Three pilots were in one car and when they slowed down for a road bump, the militants ambushed them," he told Reuters.
