The US and UK have launched joint strikes on 36 Houthi targets across 13 locations in Yemen. It comes after the US launched strikes on 85 targets in Syria and IRaq on Friday in response to a deadly drone attack on a US military base. The Houthi rebels in Yemen, who are backed by Iran, started targeting commercial vessels in the Red Sea in November, disrupting global supply chains. UK Defence Secretary Grant Shapps said the latest strikes were "not an escalation", and the Houthis' attacks on vessels in the Red Sea were "illegal and unacceptable".
