RABAT, Morocco (AP) — 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.
