WASHINGTON Oct 17 The Pentagon declined on
Monday to say whether the USS Mason destroyer was targeted by
multiple inbound missiles fired from Yemen on Saturday, as
initially thought, saying a review was underway to determine
"We are still assessing the situation. There are still some
aspects to this that we are trying to clarify for ourselves
given the threat -- the potential threat -- to our people,"
Pentagon spokesman Peter Cook told a news briefing.
"So this is still a situation that we're assessing closely."
