Yemen rebels hit Saudi tanker in Red Sea, Saudi Arabia claims

Yemen rebels hit Saudi tanker in Red Sea, Saudi Arabia claims

The attack reportedly occurred at 13:30 local time while the ship was traversing worldwide waters west of Yemen's Al-Hudeidah Port, which al-Maliki claimed was controlled by "Iran-backed militias" in reference to the Houthi group.

The Saudi-led coalition began its air raids in support of Hadi's government in March 2015. The statement did not immediately provide details on the type of weapon used or the extent of the damage.

Maliki underlined that the attack presented a serious threat to the freedom of maritime navigation and global trade in the Strait of Bab-el-Mandeb and the Red Sea.

On the later Walthamstow shooting, the spokeswoman confirmed a 16-year-old boy was found with gun shot injuries. The suspect was arrested at the scene and is being held at a London Hospital. "It was really heart-breaking".

The Iranian-aligned Houthis said they had targeted a coalition warship in response to an air strike on Hodeidah on Monday that killed at least a dozen civilians, including seven children.

Last year's Yemen appeal for $2.5b, which was 73 percent funded, but the needs have intensified in a country battered since 2015 by a Saudi-led military offensive aimed at repelling Iran-backed Huthi rebels who control the capital.

The airstrike hit a compound housing displaced people in the town of al-Hami.

The Saudi-led coalition shut down the country's land, sea and air borders previous year in response to a missile attack by the Huthis that was intercepted near Riyadh. Saudi Arabia has repeatedly accused Iran of supplying the rebels with missiles and other arms, accusations denied by Tehran.

Meanwhile in Geneva, U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said a Tuesday conference had collected pledges of more than $2 billion for humanitarian assistance for Yemen.

Thomas Staal, counselor for the U.S. Agency for International Development, or USAID, said the United States extended its "gratitude" to Saudi Arabia and UAE "for their significant contributions to the United Nations' coordinated response".

He said other donors had already contributed some $293 million, meaning that 40 percent of the target for the year has already been met. Al-Mekhlafi said: "We need to find the ideal solution which is a return to the talks table, to put an end the war, to return to a sustainable system supported by the people of Yemen, including the putschist parties and those supported by the global community".
