The United Kingdom (UK) Maritime Trade Operations (UKMTO) naval authority said on Saturday on its online website that it had been notified of an attack on a vessel off the coast of Yemen.
The website published the coordinates of the attack, which occurred in southeast Yemen, in an area overlooking the Arabian Sea. The attack took place off the town of Qishn, in Al Mahrah governorate.
The website did not provide further details, especially about the identity of the ship, and the nature of the attack.
The authority later updated the advisory notice on its website to say the “incident is now complete. Vessel and crew are safe,” according to Reuters.
