RIYADH: Two Emirati pilots were killed when their fighter jet crashed Monday in Yemen, where a Saudi-led coalition is battling Iran-backed rebels, the alliance said.

The Mirage jet crashed at dawn “due to a technical fault,” said the coalition statement published by Saudi state news agency SPA, hours after the United Arab Emirates said one of its jets had gone missing.
