U.S., Iranian Warships Shadowing Cargo Ship Near Yemen

Iran has sent two warships to accompany an Iranian cargo boat delivering humanitarian aid to Yemen, and the United States has sent warships to shadow the Iranians.

Those were the intriguing developments on May 19 as the Iranian ships neared the Yemeni port of Hodaida, where Iran has insisted they will unload their cargo.

But the United States and its allies, including Saudi Arabia, which is waging an air war against Iran-backed Huthi rebels in Yemen, are wary of Iran’s intentions and are following the Iranian flotilla “every step of the way,” said Pentagon spokesman Colonel Steve Warren.
