Tanker damaged as Arab coalition foils Houthi shipping attack

LONDON: A Greek tanker was damaged by an explosion as the Arab coalition foiled a Houthi attack at a Saudi shipping terminal on Wednesday.

The coalition said it had destroyed an explosives-laden boat and foiled the attack in the southern Red Sea. The commercial vessel suffered minor damage from shrapnel as the terror attack was foiled, the coalition said. Hostile actions carried out by the Houthi militia threaten shipping lanes and global trade, the coalition added.
