U.S. Ships Prepare to Intercept Iranian Convoy

The convoy of Iranian ships suspected of carrying weapons destined for rebels in Yemen is parked in the north Arabian Sea, U.S. officials said Tuesday. The Theodore Roosevelt and seven other American ships arrived in the Arabian Sea on Monday, and U.S. officials said that they could intercept the convoy. The United States has supports a Saudi-led campaign of airstrikes on Iranian-backed rebels known as the Houthis. The Iranian convoy is parked south of the Yemini border and Saudi and Egyptian warships are positioned to the southwest of the convoy, forming a blockade.
