The US military’s Central Command (CENTCOM) said it had launched another attack on the Houthis on Saturday morning “with an anti-ship missile targeted in the Red Sea and prepared for launch”.

“The forces subsequently attacked the missile in self-defense and destroyed it,” it said in a statement on social media platform X.

The previous evening, the British oil tanker Marlin Luanda was attacked by missiles fired by Yemeni naval forces, Houthi military spokesman Yahya Sari said.

“The attack was direct and resulted in the burning of the ship,” he said.

CENTCOM later confirmed the hit, saying: “The ship issued a distress call and reported damage. USS Carney (DDG 64) and other coalition ships have responded and are providing assistance. There is no information available at this time.” No injuries have been reported.”
