Iran's Yemen-bound aid ship docks in Djibouti

ANKARA, May 23, 2015

An Iranian aid ship on Friday docked at Djibouti's port where it will be inspected by the United Nations so its cargo can be shipped to conflict-torn Yemen, Iran's Fars news agency reported.

"The ship docked a few minutes ago in Djibouti," Fars reported. "The ship entered Djibouti waters yesterday and after inspection by the international organization will head towards Yemen."

The Iran Shahed vessel, carrying 2,500 tonnes of food and medical supplies, was previously bound for the Yemeni port of Hodaida before Iran agreed on Wednesday to allow the inspection by U.N. officials. – Reuters
