Cmdr. Bill Speaks, a Defense Department spokesman, said today that injuries to the party were minor.
The three were traveling in a car in the Red Sea port city of Hodeida on Sunday, when they were shot at by militants in another vehicle.
It was first incorrectly reported that the workers were members of the U.S. Coast Guard.
