Washington: A US Navy destroyer patrolling in the Red Sea on Saturday knocked down four attack drones before they could strike the warship, the US Central Command said.

The USS Laboon "shot down four unmanned aerial drones originating from Houthi-controlled areas in Yemen that were inbound" toward the American vessel, Centcom said in a post on X, formerly Twitter, adding there were "no injuries or damage".
