In spite of heated emotions directed against the United States worldwide due to civilian deaths from U.S. drones, the attacks have continued. Most recently a U.S. drone slammed into a wedding party in Yemen, killing 17 people, reports The Los Angeles Times on Dec. 13, 2013. Anger directed against the United States among Yemenis and others worldwide has hit new highs upon learning that most of those killed and injured in this drone strike were civilians attending a wedding party.

Hospital officials in central Bayda province confirmed that the death toll from this drone strike was 17. Yemeni security officials said although five of those killed may have been involved with the Al Qaeda, the remainder were not connected with any form of militancy. The Obama administration, which is now seen as a criminal clique of murderers by people worldwide, has a policy of not disclosing any information about drone strikes. Meanwhile, human rights groups have been calling for greater transparency about U.S. drone strikes.

Fox News claims the drone strike missed its target and hit a wedding car convoy. Many people were killed immediately with others suffering serious injuries. The attack took place in the Yemeni city of Radda, which is the capital of Bayda province. The charred bodies of innocent people in the road and vehicles on fire has aroused bitter anti-American feelings in Yemen.
