First footage of hijacked ship 'Galaxy Leader' with two Bulgarians on board
First footage of the Galaxy Leader ship hijacked ten days ago in Hodeida harbour.
The company Maxar, which provides satellite imagery, has released pictures of the hijacked vessel. Two Bulgarians are on board - the captain and his assistant. Other crew members include citizens of Ukraine, the Philippines, Mexico and Romania.
Galaxy Leader was hijacked by Yemeni Houthi rebels on 19 November, with the only demand being that Israel and the United States end the Gaza offensive.
It is clear from the photographs that the ship docked some 50 kilometres off the coast. Since the day of the hijacking, communication with it and its crew has been impossible.
