Two missiles fired from rebel-held territory in Yemen landed near an American destroyer in the Red Sea, the U.S. Navy said Monday, the second such launch targeting ships in the international waterway in recent days.Lt. Ian McConnaughey, a spokesman for U.S. Navy Forces Central Command, said that it's unclear if the USS Mason was specifically targeted, though the missiles were fired in its direction over an hour's time period, starting at 7 p.m.An American defense official said the USS Mason used onboard defensive measures after the first missile was fired, but it wasn't clear if that caused the missile to splash harmlessly into the sea. U.S. Navy officials declined to immediately discuss what kind of missiles were used in the USS Mason attack incident.The Saudi military said the missile fired late Saturday night was intercepted and caused no damage.
