Tankers seized in Yemen port, risking deeper import crisis

Hodeida port remains under Houthi control. 

Authorities in a port controlled by Yemen’s Houthi movement have seized two oil tankers from international traders in a payment dispute, according to the ships’ owners, an incident which could make it more difficult for the country to import vital supplies.

Ocean Tankers, the Singapore-based owner of the two 74,000 tonne ships, the Chao Hu and the Hong Ze Hu, confirmed that the vessels were being denied permission to leave the Red Sea port of Hodeida, Yemen’s second-biggest port, which is controlled by the Houthi movement that also holds the capital Sanaa.
