THE Department of Migrant Workers (DMW) yesterday reported that all 23 Filipino crewmen onboard a vessel attacked by Houthi rebels on Saturday are safe and unharmed.

Their vessel which sustained slight damage was sailing close to the Yemeni port city of Hodeida when it was attacked.

The vessel is continuing on its journey to its next port of call.

The DMW is closely coordinating with international maritime authorities, shipping companies, and local manning agencies on the status of ships with Filipino seafarers traversing high risk areas and war-like zones in the Red Sea and the Gulf Of Aden.
