A MISSILE fired from Yemen has hit a Greek-owned bulk carrier near the Red Sea, United Kingdom Marine Trade Operations (UKMTO) reports.
The marine organisation stated the incident took place 100 nautical miles west of Yemen’s Saleef.

British maritime security firm Ambrey said the vessel, which is Malta-flagged, was reportedly impacted by the missile.
The vessel was transiting northbound at the time of the attack.
Authorities are currently investigating the incident, UKMTO added.
Vessels have been advised to transit with caution and report any suspicious activity.
The attack comes after the Iran-backed Houthis have hit a US-owned cargo ship after firing a three-rocket barrage on Monday.
The port side of the vessel was hit “from above” by one of the missiles, with the other two failing to reach the sea.
Following the attack, Prime Minister Rishi Sunak said Britain would not “hesitate” to launch more strikes against the Iran-backed Houthis.Leave a comment
