Yemeni president Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi is requesting Washington hand over a number of armed drones to his forces, to combat al Qaeda forces based in the southern part of the country. 

"I have discussed the issue of helping us acquire this technology with the U.S. administration," Hadi reportedly told local media outlets, according to Reuters. 

Yemen is one of several countries that U.S. military and intelligence forces have conducted armed drone strikes against suspected terrorist groups.
