U.S. Drone Killed Yemeni Man After an 8 Year Old Boy Planted Tracking Chip

The United States was reportedly able to target an alleged al-Qaeda operative named Adnan al-Qadhi for an drone strike after U.S. allies in Yemen convinced an 8-year-old boy to place a tracking chip in the pocket of the man he considered to be his surrogate father. Shortly after the child planted the device, a U.S. drone tracked and killed al-Qadhi with a missile. He was killed last November less than 24 hours after President Barack Obama's re-election.
