Dubai, february 22

A cargo ship was set on fire off the southern coast of Yemen after being struck by a missile on Thursday, which has prompted US-led naval forces to respond, British maritime agencies reported. The UK-owned, Palau-flagged ship was en route to Egypt from Thailand, according to maritime security firm Ambrey and ship tracking data.

Islander is the name of the vessel, two shipping sources said. US-led coalition forces are responding to the incident, which involved two missiles being fired at the ship 70 nautical miles southeast of Aden, Yemen. Iran-aligned Houthi militants in Yemen have launched repeated drone and missile strikes in the Red Sea since November. — Reuters
