Video released by Yemen's Houthi group media center on Sunday purports to show the group firing a missile towards a nuclear power plant under construction in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), a report quickly denied by the UAE.
The UAE's emergency and crisis management department was quoted by state news agency WAM as saying the UAE possessed a missile defense system that could deal with any such threats and adding the al-Barakah nuclear plant was secure against all eventualities.
