Yemen's Houthis say they will release seized ships if Korean
Tuesday, 19 November 2019 Yemen's Iran-aligned Houthi movement said on Tuesday it would release vessels it had captured if they prove to be South Korean, after it seized a rig being towed by a Saudi tugboat in the southern Red Sea.
South Korea says two of its vessels -- a dredger and a tug-boat -- have been seized off Yemen by Houthi fighters. A Houthi official says they've taken and are checking a "suspect vessel," and if it is South Korean, it will be released. Lucy Fielder reports.
