Yemen says intercepted Iranian ship carrying weapons

Published: 02.03.13, 00:13 / Israel News

Yemen confirmed on Saturday that a ship intercepted last month off its coast was an Iranian vessel trying to smuggle explosives and surface-to-air missiles to the country, the state news agency Saba reported.

Officials in Washington said earlier this week that the seizure of the ship on January 23 had been coordinated with the U.S. Navy and that the intercepted shipment was believed to have been from Iran and destined for insurgents, likely to be Shi'ite Muslim Houthi rebels mainly based in northern Yemen.
