UK maritime agency: US-led forces responding to Houthi missile attack off coast of Yemen

Two missiles were fired at a vessel in an attack southeast of the Yemeni port city of Aden a short while ago, causing a fire onboard, Britain’s maritime agency says.

US-led coalition forces are responding to the incident, which took place 70 nautical miles from Aden in the direction of the Red Sea, the United Kingdom Maritime Trade Operations (UKMTO) agency says without elaborating.

“It has been reported that a vessel was attacked by two missiles, resulting in a fire on board,” the UKMTO says.
