UK-owned ship struck by rocket in the Red Sea: Report

A U.K.-owned trading vessel was struck by a rocket while passing the Yemeni coast in the Red Sea on Sunday.

The United Kingdom Maritime Trade Operations agency says it received "a report of Uncrewed Aerial Systems (UAS) activity including a potential explosion... originating from the direction of Yemen," according to the Agence France-Presse. The organization did not report any injuries in the incident.

Tensions are rising in the region after Iran-backed Houthi rebels hijacked a vessel in the region last month. The terrorist group attempted an assault on another Israeli-linked vessel last week.
