Yemeni intelligence files containing information about U.S.-supported counterterrorism operations and the names of informants have been looted by Iranian-allied Houthi rebels, the Los Angeles Times reported on Wednesday.
The newspaper, citing U.S. officials, said the information was taken when the Houthi fighters seized the office of Yemen’s National Security Bureau, which had worked with the CIA and other intelligence agencies.
It added that intelligence officials believed additional files were given to Iranian advisers by Yemeni officials supporting the rebels.
The paper said there was no sign, however, that the Houthi militias had gained direct control of U.S. intelligence files.
