Site of drone strike

Tribesmen stand on the rubble of a building destroyed by a US drone airstrike, which targeted suspected al-Qaeda militants in Azan of the southeastern Yemeni province of Shabwa on Feb. 3, 2013. Abdulrahman al-Awlaki, the son of slain US-born cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, and six al Qaeda militants were killed in a strike on this building on Oct. 14, 2011, tribal elders said. Abdulrahman al-Awlaki was 16 years old and also a US citizen. His father had been killed in a drone strike two weeks earlier, in September 2011.
