World News: Yemen's Houthis used missiles in Abu Dhabi attack: UAE envoy Updated: 2022-01-20 10:53:34 KST

Let's take a look at what's going on in 'The World Now'.

According to the UAE ambassador to the United States on Wednesday, Yemen's Houthi rebels in their attack on Abu Dhabi earlier this week, used cruise and ballistic missiles, in addition to drones.
The statements by Ambassador Yousef Al-Otaiba marked the official acknowledgement that missiles, and not just drones were used in Monday's attack that killed three people and started fires at a fuel depot.
He added that while several missiles were intercepted, a few of them weren't resulting in the deaths of three civilians.
However, the envoy did not respond to further questions about how many missiles targeted the UAE, and how many of them were intercepted.
The Houthis said earlier that they fired five ballistic missiles, and used a number of explosive-laden drones in their attack, adding they targeted the airports of Abu Dhabi and Dubai.
However, there was no indication Dubai was hit in Monday's attack.
Al-Otaiba says the UAE is pressing Washington to designate the Houthis as a terrorist organization.
