The U.S. carried out more than 20  airstrikes in Yemen yesterday targeting al-Qaeda fighters.  The Pentagon  says the strikes were conducted by drones and manned aircraft over the  Arabian Peninsula.  They went after terrorists, equipment and  infrastructure in three Yemeni regions and were carried out in  partnership with the Yemeni government.  

A Pentagon officials says the  strikes are not the direct result of a Navy SEAL raid in January, in  which a U.S. service member and several children were killed.
