UAE denies Yemen's Houthis have fired missile toward UAE

DUBAI (Reuters) - The United Arab Emirates on Sunday denied a report that Yemen’s Houthi group had fired a missile toward a nuclear plant in the UAE, state news agency WAM reported on its Twitter account.

It quoted the UAE’s emergency and crisis management department as saying the UAE possessed a missile defense system that could deal with any such threats and adding the al-Barakah nuclear plant was secure against all eventualities.
