DUBAI (Reuters) - Yemen's Houthi rebels broadcast video footage on Monday they said showed wreckage of a Moroccan F-16 warplane which Morocco said had gone missing in Saudi-led combat operations against the Iran-allied group.

The Houthi TV channel al-Masira said the plane was shot down by tribesmen loyal to the group in Saada province near Yemen's border with Saudi Arabia.
