US military says it shot down Houthi drones that posed ‘imminent threat’ to ships in Red Sea

CAIRO — The US Central Command says US aircraft and a coalition warship shot down five one-way attack drones in the Red Sea that originated from Houthi-controlled areas in Yemen.

The drones “presented an imminent threat to merchant vessels and to the US Navy and coalition ships in the region,” CENTCOM says in a statement on Wednesday.
