Germany strongly condemns the latest attacks on vessels by Iranian-backed Houthis in the Red Sea, a German foreign ministry spokesperson says.

The attacks “show that the Houthis are clearly focusing on escalation against international merchant shipping and the ships of our partners and allies in the region,” adds the spokesperson.
