“Was Shadadi’s mother and father terrorist? They were killed by the US drone. They are both over 60 years old.”
-Abdul Hadi Mohammed, neighbor of al Qaeda suspect Nader Shadadi, whose father, mother and sister were killed by a US drone strike in Yemen last week. Over 100 Yemenis have been killed in such bombings which have been a near-daily occurrence since June 1. Mr Mohammed added that the killings will only increase the hatred locals have for the United States, and turn residents into al Qaeda sympathizers.
