The Houthi rebel group on Friday said it downed a "spying" drone in northern Yemen.

Group's spokesman Yehia Serie stated the downed drone was a U.S.-made ScanEagle unmanned aircraft.

The drone "was downed while carrying out hostile and spying activities in the border areas [with Saudi Arabia]," Serie said without elaborating.

The Saudi-led international coalition is yet to comment on the incident.
