Yemen’s Huthi rebels open seized cargo ship to sightseers

Hodeida (Yemen) (AFP) – More than two months after Yemen’s Huthi rebels captured the Galaxy Leader cargo ship and detained its 25 crew, the Iran-backed rebels have turned the vessel into a domestic “tourist attraction”. For about a dollar per trip, male-only groups of visitors can board wooden boats five times a week to the hijacked car carrier which the Huthis hail as a trophy in their fight in solidarity with the Palestinians.
