Yemen's Houthis say they attacked US ship in Red Sea

Yemen's Houthi rebels said on Monday they attacked a U.S. vessel in the Red Sea, after maritime security firms reported that missiles were fired on a bulk carrier.

"The naval forces of the Yemeni Armed Forces targeted the American ship Star Iris in the Red Sea with a number of suitable naval missiles, and the strikes were accurate and direct," Houthi spokesman Yahya Saree said.
