Tanker seized off Yemen

Tanker in Middle East safe from attackers after US Navy responds
A US Navy warship responded to a distress call from a commercial tanker in the Gulf of Aden that had been seized by armed individuals and is now safe, US officials said on Sunday. The tanker, which had been carrying a cargo of phosphoric acid, was identified as the Central Park by the vessel’s company.

An American warship and multiple commercial ships came under attack on Sunday in the Red Sea, the Pentagon said, potentially marking a major escalation in a series of maritime attacks in the Mideast…“We’re aware of reports regarding attacks on the USS Carney and commercial vessels in the Red Sea and will provide information as it becomes available,” the Pentagon said.
