Morocco: Body of downed pilot found in Yemen

Morocco's armed forces says it has located what it believes is the body of one of its pilots downed over Yemen.

The statement Friday said a plane has been sent with DNA experts to identify the body of Yassine Bahti, whose F-16 was shot down Monday by Houthi rebels.

Morocco is part of the Saudi led coalition of countries carrying out air strikes against the Houthis in Yemen.
