Yemen’s Houthi rebels release video of Red Sea cargo ship
Iran-backed Houthi rebels have released video footage showing armed men dropping from a helicopter and seizing a cargo ship in the southern Red Sea.
The footage was released by the movement’s Al Masirah TV channel, one day after the boat was hijacked by the Iran-backed group, which said the boat – known as the Galaxy Leader – was linked to Israel. .
Israel said the ship was not Israeli, and a Japanese government spokesman said it was operated by Nippon Yusen.
