Morocco Claims To Have Found Body of Fighter Pilot In Yemen

The Moroccan military said on Friday it may have located the body of the pilot of an F-16 fighter jet that crashed during coalition air strikes in Yemen, and had sent genetic experts to the scene.
A statement from the Royal Armed Forces carried by state news agency MAP said, "contacts made locally by Moroccan authorities should lead to the repatriation, after the necessary formalities, of the apparent body of the missing pilot."
The North African state's army had said on Wednesday there was no evidence the pilot had died and searches for him were continuing.
A Saudi-led coalition has been conducting air strikes against Houthi rebels and army units loyal to ex-president Ali Abdullah Saleh since March 26 with the aim of restoring exiled President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi.
