US drone shot down over Yemen

A US MQ-9 drone was shot down over Yemen on Tuesday by a surface-to-air missile, a US official tells CNN.

The US believes the missile was provided to Houthi rebels by Iran, said the official, who added that it was not immediately clear if the drone was being operated by the US military or the intelligence community.
The official said the Trump administration will publicly call out Iran for the incident, which was first reported by Reuters.
Houthi rebels claimed its air defenses shot down the drone south of Yemen’s capital, Sanaa. A Houthi spokesman said the missile was “developed locally” and will be revealed at a press conference.
