NATO says U.S. and British strikes on Houthis 'defensive'


NATO on Friday said that overnight U.S. and British military strikes on Houthi targets in Yemen were aimed at protecting shipping through the Red Sea and urged Iran to "rein in its proxies."

"These strikes were defensive, and designed to preserve freedom of navigation in one of the world's most vital waterways. The Houthi attacks must end," Dylan White, a spokesman for the Western military alliance, said.
