The United States said Tuesday it was considering designating Yemen’s Huthi rebels a terrorist organization after their seizure of an Israel-linked cargo vessel in the Red Sea.

National Security Council spokesman John Kirby told reporters that “in light of… the piracy of a ship in international waters, we have begun a review of potential terrorist designations and we’ll be considering other options together with our allies and partners as well.”
