Houthi targets hit by US and UK

U.S. and British forces carried out more than a dozen strikes against several Houthi sites in Yemen on Saturday, officials said, the latest response to the Iran-backed rebel group's recent attacks on commercial and naval ships in the Red Sea and The Gulf of Aden.

A joint statement from the U.S., U.K. and other allied countries said the strikes were against 18 Houthi targets across eight locations in Yemen, which included underground weapons and missile storage facilities, air defense systems, radars and a helicopter.

The Houthis' attacks, the countries said, "constitute a threat to the global economy, as well as regional security and stability, and demand an international response."
