    SANAA, Yemen (AP) - An American drone strike in southern Yemen has killed seven al-Qaida-linked militants, including the media chief for the group's Yemeni branch and the son of a prominent U.S.-born cleric slain in a similar attack last month, government officials and tribal elders said Saturday.
    In the capital, meanwhile, forces loyal to embattled President Ali Abdullah Saleh opened fire on tens of thousands of protesters, killing at least nine and wounding scores, according to medical officials and witnesses.

    The airstrike late Friday in the southeastern province of Shabwapoints to Washington's growing use of drones to target al-Qaida militants in Yemen. The missile attacks appear to be part of a determined effort to stamp out the threat from the group, known as al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula, which U.S. officials have said is the terror network's most active and most dangerous branch.

    The Yemeni Defense Ministry identified the slain media chief as Egyptian-born Ibrahim al-Bana. Tribal elders in the area also said the dead included Abdul-Rahman al-Awlaki, the 21-year-old son of Anwar al-Awlaki, a gifted Muslim preacher and savvy Internet operator who became a powerful al-Qaida recruiting tool in the West. He, along with another propagandist, Pakistani-American Samir Khan, were killed in a Sept. 30 U.S. drone attack.

    Nakuambia ndugu yangu hawa Al Qaida ni watu hatari sana. Walipoupiga ubalozi wa USA pale Dar agent wangu kule Marekani aliniarifu amefunga ofisi yake kwa sababu amefilisika na hakuna mtalii aliye book safari kuja East Africa kwa muda wa miaka kama tano. Uingireza nao wakatangaza hatari ya east Afri8ca pia na nchi nyingine za Europe. Kama mdau wa utalii nilithirika sana na hata mkopo niliokuwa nao ungeamgamia kama nisingeifilisi kampuni.

    Heko Yemen inshalah
