US military says it blasted Houthi drone out of sky over Red Sea

US forces destroyed an uncrewed aerial system launched over the Red Sea early Monday morning from an area of Yemen controlled by Iranian-backed Houthis, the US Central Command says.

The drone “presented an imminent threat to merchant vessels in the region,” CentCom says.

The Houthis earlier claimed to have attacked three merchant vessels and two warships in the Red Sea and Indian Ocean.
