US warship shoots down drone launched from Yemen

An American destroyer shot down a drone today that was launched from a part of Yemen controlled by the Iran-backed Houthi rebels, the US military’s Central Command says.

“At approximately 1100 (Sanaa time), while in the South Red Sea, the Arleigh-Burke Class Guided Missile Destroyer USS Carney (DDG 64) shot down an Iranian-produced KAS04 unmanned aerial vehicle launched from Huthi-controlled areas of Yemen,” CENTCOM says in a statement.
