US Secretary of State Antony Blinken says there will be consequences for continued attacks on commercial shipping lanes in the Red Sea by Yemen-based Iran-backed Houthis and that it has been made clear to Iran that support being provided needs to stop.

“We’ve also repeatedly tried to make clear to Iran, as other countries have, as well, that the support that they’re providing to the Houthis, including for these actions, needs to stop,” Blinken tells reporters.
