US and allies to counter Houthi threats in Red Sea

The United States, along with its allies, will "continue to take appropriate action" to safeguard the Red Sea maritime routes against assaults by Yemen's Houthi group, State Department spokesperson Matthew Miller announced on Wednesday.

"The United States condemns the reckless and indiscriminate attacks on civilian cargo ships by the Houthis. The Houthis are behaving like a terrorist organisation," he said in a statement.
