The Saudi-led coalition in Yemen destroyed on Tuesday two explosive-laden boats launched and remotely-controlled by the Iran-aligned Houthi group from the province of Hodeidah, Saudi state news agency SPA reported.

The two boats constituted a threat to navigation in the Bab al-Mandab Strait, which connects the Indian Ocean and the Red Sea, SPA said, citing a coalition spokesman.
