Saudi-led coalition says Yemen rebels threat to ships in Red Sea

Saudi-led coalition says Yemen rebels threat to ships in Red SeaA Saudi-led coalition has warned Yemen’s rebels threaten ships in the Red Sea through their control of a key port, days after rebel warnings over a coalition blockade. “The port of Hodeida is a launching pad for terrorist operations threatening navigation in the Red Sea and the Bab al-Mandab Strait,” coalition spokesman Turki al-Maliki said late Wednesday. The Red Sea is a key shipping route for world trade that connects the Middle East to Europe via the Suez Canal.
