The death toll from a US raid on Al-Qaeda in Yemen on Sunday has risen to 57 people, including 41 suspected militants and 16 civilians, a provincial official said.

Eight women and eight children were among those killed in the raid in the central province of Baida, the official said.

It would be Washington’s first strike on jihadists in Yemen since President Donald Trump took office on January 20.
