SANAA, May 12 (Reuters) - A drone strike killed at least two people in the northern Yemeni province of Maarib early on Monday, a military official and an official from the region told Reuters.

The drone destroyed the car in which they were travelling in the Wadi Abida district of the province, which is east of the capital Sanaa, the officials said, and comes as Yemen's army continues a campaign against militants linked to al Qaeda in the south.
