UNITED NATIONS — The United Nations Security Council demands an immediate end to attacks by Yemen’s Houthi rebels on shipping in the Red Sea.

The resolution passed “demands that the Houthis immediately cease all such attacks, which impede global commerce and undermine navigational rights and freedoms as well as regional peace and security.”

It passes after Russia, as well as China, Mozambique and Algeria abstain.
