Bahraini jet taking part in Yemen war crashes in Saudi Arabia .


A Bahraini F-16 jet taking part in a mostly Gulf Arab military campaign in Yemen has crashed in southern Saudi Arabia, according to a coalition statement on the Saudi state news agency.
The pilot survived after the plane suffered a technical fault and came down in the Jizan region, the statement added, without going into further detail.
Bahrain has taken part in the Saudi-led coalition bombing the Iran-allied Houthi movement for nine months, and scores of ground forces from the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Saudi Arabia have been killed since the start of the conflict.
