SANAA, Yemen (AP) - Yemeni security officials say a suspected U.S. drone has killed four alleged al-Qaida members in a volatile eastern province.

The officials say the drone fired a missile early today and hit a car carrying the four men in the al-Arqeen district of Marib province, setting it on fire and killing all of them.

The officials, speaking on condition of anonymity because they are not allowed to talk to the media, believed that one of the dead is Saleh Jouti, a senior al-Qaida member.

The strike is the fourth in less than two weeks. Three similar attacks have hit cars belonging to alleged al-Qaida figures in southern Yemen.

Washington considers al-Qaida's Yemeni branch one of the world's most dangerous terrorist groups.
