An aid ship headed for a war-torn Yemen was struck by airstrike launched by Houthi rebels according to one UAE news source. A Houthi spokesman had since confirmed that it was a Houthi attack. A rescue mission was sent out to rescue those on the ship, and the attack has been called a "dangerous indication" by the Saudi-led Arab coalition. The coalition began its campaign aimed at restoring the Yemen government and to prevent forces loyal to the President from taking power over the country. Since this conflict has started in March 2015, at least 10,000 people have been killed.
