Saturday?s operation was carried out by joint US and Yemeni special forces in the southern Shabwa region.

US President Barack Obama condemned the??barbaric murder??of both hostages.

They were being held by militants from al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), regarded by the US as one of the deadliest offshoots of al-Qaeda.

The group is based in eastern Yemen and has built up support amid the unrest which has beset the impoverished country since the overthrow of President Ali Abdullah Saleh in 2011.
