Yemen’s Houthis attacked the cargo ship

It is reported that Yemeni forces attacked the cargo ship True Confidence in the Gulf of Aden, after which it caught fire.

Al Jazeera writes about this with reference to the Houthi press service.

Two sailors were killed, the British embassy in Sana’a said.

According to the AP, the ship is owned by Los Angeles-based Oaktree Capital Management.

Reuters claims that it is owned by a Greek company with no connection to the United States, and that the ship was flying the flag of Barbados.

Ambrey, which specializes in maritime security, claims that the attacked bulk carrier is still American.
