Officials say US missiles destroy radar sites on Yemen coast
By LOLITA C. BALDOR 19 minutes ago WASHINGTON (AP) — American officials say U.S.-launched Tomahawk cruise missiles have destroyed three coastal radar sites in Houthi-controlled territory on Yemen's Red Sea Coast. The retaliatory action follows two incidents this week in which missiles were fired at U.S. Navy ships. The strikes marked the first shots fired by the U.S. in anger against the Houthis in Yemen's long-running civil war. Officials haven't provided information on casualties from the U.S. missiles fired early Thursday.
