Houthi militant reacts at the yard of residence of the military commander of the Houthi militant group Abdullah Yahya al Hakim after an air strike destroyed it, in SanaaBy Mohammed Ghobari CAIRO (Reuters) - Heavy fighting between Iranian-allied Houthi militia and local tribesmen killed at least 15 people in Yemen's oil-producing Marib province and an air strike targeted the home of a senior Houthi official, residents and tribal and medical sources said. Yemeni Vice President Khaled Bahah had called on the Houthis on Monday to heed a U.N. Security Council demand for an end to fighting. The conflict has pushed Yemen into a humanitarian "catastrophe", according to the Red Cross. Top world oil exporter Saudi Arabia, rattled by what it sees as expanding Iranian influence in the region, has been leading a Gulf Arab coalition in waging air strikes on Houthi targets since late March.

A Rickmers Group spokeswoman declined to comment when contacted by Reuters about the vessel.

By Noah Browning and David Alexander DUBAI/WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Iranian forces boarded a Marshall Islands-flagged cargo ship in the Gulf on Tuesday after patrol boats fired warning shots across its bow and ordered it deeper into Iranian waters, the Pentagon said. U.S. planes and a destroyer were monitoring the situation after the vessel, the MV Maersk Tigris, made a distress call in the Strait of Hormuz, one of the world's most important oil shipping channels. There was no immediate word from Iranian officials. Reuters tracking data showed the Maersk, a 65,000-tonne container ship, off the Iranian coast between the islands of Qeshm and Hormuz.
