WASHINGTON, Aug 21 (Reuters) - A U.S. military MQ-9 drone was shot down in Yemen's Dhamar governate, southeast of the Houthi-controlled capital Sanaa, two U.S. officials told Reuters on Wednesday.
The officials, speaking on the condition of anonymity, said the drone was shot down late on Tuesday.
A Houthi military spokesman had earlier been quoted by group's Al-Masirah TV as saying that the Houthi movement's air defenses had brought down a U.S. drone. (Reporting by Idrees Ali)
