By Elizabeth Arrott Cairo 28 October 2009 Yemen's government has confirmed reports its coast guard has seized an Iranian ship with arms it says were destined for Yemeni rebels. Iranian media counters the Yemeni government is using al-Qaida in its war against the Shi'ite rebels. Yemen's Interior Ministry says it is questioning five Iranians found aboard a ship captured earlier this week off Yemen's western coast. Local officials said weapons aboard the ship were destined for al-Houthi rebels, Zaidi Shi'ite followers of the late Malik al-Houthi who claim they are discriminated against in the majority-Sunni nation. The rebels and Iran deny any ties. As for the ship, Tehran first dismissed reports as a media lie. It now says the government charges are baseless.
