Yemen's Shia Houthi rebels said Monday that they shot down a warplane of the Saudi-led coalition, shortly after Morocco said one of its fighter jets had gone missing on a sortie.

"The air defence of the tribes shot down a warplane over Wadi Nushur, in Saada," the rebels' northern stronghold, Houthi news channel Al-Masirah said, broadcasting images of tribesmen celebrating around the wreckage of a plane.
