Yemen: Seized Iranian ship carried varied weapons

Yemen's Defense Ministry says a ship seized by Yemeni authorities last month carried Iranian-made weapons, including material for bombs and suicide belts, explosives, Katyusha rockets, surface-to-air missiles, rocket-propelled grenades and large amounts of ammunition.

 

In a statement Wednesday, the ministry detailed contents of the Iranian ship seized in Yemen's territorial waters in mid-January. It described contents as "large, diverse and dangerous" weapons that also included night vision binoculars and goggles, remote devices, circuits, wires and rifle silencers. (AP)
