Saudi-led coalition says it foiled Houthi attack on ship in Red Sea

RIYADH, July 8 (Reuters) - Naval forces from the Saudi-led coalition fighting in Yemen foiled an attempted attack on a commercial ship in the Red Sea by the Iran-aligned Houthi group, a military spokesman said on Monday.

A tweet by Saudi state television quoting Colonel Turki al-Malki did not name the ship or provide other details about the incident.
