SANAA, Yemen —

A Yemeni military plane on a training exercise crashed Monday in the country's capital, slamming into a residential neighborhood and setting at least four houses ablaze, according to a military official and an Associated Press reporter at the scene.

There was no immediate word on casualties, but several ambulances were rushing to the site of the crash, their sirens wailing. Security forces have cordoned off the area where the plane went down in southern Sanaa.

The official said military experts were investigating the incident.

He spoke on condition of anonymity in line with military rules that prohibit personnel from speaking to the media without prior authorization.

In February, a military plane flying a training mission crashed in Sanaa, killing 10 people and destroying two houses.
