Houthi missiles claim second ship

A bulk carrier has sunk in the Red Sea a week after being hit by a Houthi missile. The UK Maritime Trade Operations (UKMTO) said on 18 June that Tutor, a 2022-built Kamsarmax vessel owned by Evalend Shipping, is believed to have sunk.


UKMTO said, Military authorities report maritime debris and oil sighted in the last reported location.


The ship was hit 66 nautical miles southwest of Al Hudaydah, Yemen, on 12 June and its crew was evacuated as Tutor began taking in water, with the engine room being flooded. However, Tutors second engineer, a Filipino, was killed in the attack and his body is understood to have been trapped in the engine room.


It is the second known vessel to have sunk due to a Houthi assault, after the Handysize bulk carrier Rubymar went down in February.


The US Central Command said that in the last 24 hours, it has destroyed eight Houthi drones in a Houthi-controlled area of Yemen.


Additionally, partner forces successfully destroyed one Houthi drone over the Gulf of Aden.
