In a statement cited by the official Saudi Press Agency, he said the vessel was travelling from Yemen’s Socotra island, off the country’s south coast when Yemen’s Houthi rebels seized the vessel in the Red Sea.

It was returning to the Saudi city of Jizan carrying medical supplies after finishing a mission to set up a field hospital on the island, Malki said

Riyadh and its allies have accused the Houthis of attacking shipping in the Red Sea, one of the world’s busiest maritime lanes leading to the Suez Canal.
