Iranian aid ship being probed in Djibouti

The Iranian aid ship which was heading to Yemen with aid is sailing to Djibouti to be inspected by United Nations officials.

A semi-official Iranian news source reported yesterday that Iran Shahd, which is carrying humanitarian aid for the Yemeni people, will dock in Djibouti for inspection, and will then continue travelling to the Yemeni port of Hodaida.

The ship set off from Iran last Monday set to deliver 2,500 tonnes of food and medical supplies to Yemen.

The source said the ship is carrying 2,400 tonnes of food, including 1,200 tonnes of rice, 700 tonnes of flour, 400 tonnes of canned food, 50 tonnes of mineral water and about 100 tonnes of medical equipment and medicines.
