Two missiles targeted a US warship off the coast of Yemen on Sunday but missed the vessel and hit the water instead, a Pentagon spokesman said.

The missiles were fired at the USS Mason from Houthi-controlled territory in war-torn Yemen, Capt. Jeff Davis said, adding that the guided-missile destroyer deployed “onboard defensive measures” and was undamaged.

But the Houthis — a minority Shia group that has taken control of much of Yemen, including the capital — denied Monday that its forces had targeted the warship.
