KARACHI: At least seven Pakistanis were reportedly killed in a rocket attack on a cargo ship off Yemen coast on Thursday.
All the members of crew of the Iranian ship were Pakistani nationals and an officer identified as Kabir is said to have rescued his lie by jumping off the vessel as it started sinking after catching fire.
The ship MV Joya was heading to Dubai from Egypt when it came under attack when it was sailing in Yemeni waters. There was no claim of responsibility for the attack. Thousands of people have been killed in an ongoing conflict in Yemen between two factions claiming to constitute the government. INP
