US Central Command says two ballistic missiles launched from Houthi-controlled areas likely towards M/V KOI ship in Red Sea

CAIRO (Reuters) - Two anti-ship ballistic missiles were launched from Houthi-controlled areas in Yemen, likely towards the M/V KOI ship in the Red Sea, the U.S. Central Command said in a statement on Thursday.

"The missiles impacted in the water without hitting the ship," it said, adding there were no injuries and no damage reported to the Liberian flagged, Bermuda-owned cargo M/V KOI, or the coalition ships in the area.
