At least two people were killed in a drone missile strike in Yemen's southern Shabwa province.

"The car was completely obliterated and the two men inside it were killed," a local official said, adding the strike happened late on Monday. He gave no further details.

Yemen is one of a handful of countries where Washington acknowledges using drones, although it does not comment publicly on the practice.

Security in Yemen is of regional and global importance.

AQAP has previously plotted unsuccessfully to attack international airliners and is seen in Washington as a potential threat to Yemen's neighbour Saudi Arabia, the world's top oil exporter, and Red Sea oil tankers.

On Monday, AQAP leader Wuhayshi said he would free jailed Islamists soon.
