TEHRAN, December 12 - U.N. officials who examined debris from missiles fired at Saudi Arabia from Yemen have not confirmed that they were Iranian-made but are still analyzing the information, according to a confidential report obtained by AFP.

U.N. does not yet confirm Iran link to Yemen missiles: reportTEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) - Saudi Arabia and the United States have accused Iran of supplying weapons to Yemen's Huthis who fired a missile intercepted near Riyadh airport on November 4.

U.N. Secretary General Antonio Guterres told the Security Council that the missiles fired on July 22 and November 4 both had a diameter that was "consistent" with a Scud missile. The Qiam-1 is a variant of the Scud missile.

Guterres said, "The missiles had similar structural and manufacturing features which suggest a common origin,” according to the report sent to the council on Friday.

He cautioned that U.N. officials were still "carefully reviewing all the information and material available," but offered no firm conclusions.

Iran has repeatedly denied these allegations, raised by the US and Saudi Arabia.

During a fact-finding mission to Saudi Arabia, U.N. officials also examined two drones recovered in Yemen but did not confirm a Saudi claim that one of them was Iranian-made.
