The US Navy says it has seized a weapons shipment in the Arabian Sea from Iran likely heading to Yemen, AP reported.

The USS Sirocco on March 28 intercepted and seized the shipment of weapons hidden aboard a small dhow, the Navy said on Monday.

The shipment reportedly included 1,500 Kalashnikov assault rifles, 200 rocket-propelled grenade launchers and machine guns. Those aboard the dhow were released after sailors confiscated the arms.

A Saudi-led, US-backed coalition is fighting against Shiite rebels and their allies in Yemen.
