A U.S. airstrike in Yemen killed three members of al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula. In a statement, U.S. Central Command announced that the strike took place in Yemen’s central Shabwa province but did not say whether the strike was carried out by drones. (Voice of America)

Meanwhile, the Obama administration released a redacted version of its classified “playbook,” a document that establishes the legal framework for U.S. targeted killing and capture operations overseas. The Presidential Policy Guidance was issued in May 2013 as part of an effort by the administration to tighten its guidelines for U.S. drone strikes. The document release is the result of a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit filed by the American Civil Liberties Union. (Press Release)
