According to Saudi Arabia’s state-run news agency SPA, Arab League spokesman Brigadier General Turki al-Maliki said “the terrorist Houthi militia will be fully responsible for the criminal act of piracy against the ship.”

“This is a violation of international humanitarian law, the San Remo Manual on Armed Conflicts and the United Nations Law of the Sea,” he said.

“The militia must leave the ship immediately or the coalition forces will take all necessary steps to deal with the breach, including the use of force if necessary.”

The cargo ship was hijacked near the Yemeni coastal city of Hodeidah.
