SANAA, Yemen – India's Foreign Ministry says two boats carrying 20 Indian crew members were bombarded by aircraft while sailing between Somalia and Yemen, a day after the Yemeni coast guard said a Saudi-led coalition fighting Yemeni Shiite rebels bombed boats off its coast.
Foreign Ministry spokesman Vikas Swarup said Wednesday the boats were bombed Tuesday. Swarup says 13 crew members are alive and seven are missing. He did not elaborate.
