IMO working to solve Red Sea crisis

LONDON: The International Maritime Organization (IMO) is working “tirelessly” to solve the Red Sea crisis, which is severely disrupting the global transport of goods, its head Arsenio Dominguez said.

Yemen’s Houthi rebels, supported by Iran, have launched dozens of attacks against ships in the Red Sea since November, targeting boats headed for Israel in an act of “solidarity” with the inhabitants of the Gaza Strip, which is in the grip of the war between Israel and Hamas.
