An Iranian-flagged vessel transporting anti-tank weapons to Shi’ite rebels was seized by Yemen’s navy off the country’s northwest coast. Five Iranian nationals, identified by Yemeni officials as weapons experts, were transfered to the capital city of Sanaa for investigation.
The Yemeni government has been alleging for some time now that Tehran has been training, equipping and funding Shi’ite Houthi rebels in its northwestern territory of Hajja.
