At least 10 al-Qaeda militants, including some leaders, have been killed in air strikes in southern Yemen.

Al-Qaeda targets were struck close to the city of Bayda, some 80 miles south of the capital Sanaa late on Friday.

Police and security sources told the media that the strikes had killed 23.

Officials said the attacks were carried out by Yemeni planes, although some residents thought they were US planes.

The Americans are known to have used drones to launch air strikes in Yemen.

Militants, suspected to be linked to al-Qaeda, have exploited a security vacuum in the region after months of anti-government protests.
