Yemen's Iran-backed Houthi rebels have released video footage showing armed men dropping from a helicopter and seizing a cargo ship in the southern Red Sea.

The footage was released by the movement's TV channel Al Masirah, one day after the ship was hijacked by the Iran-backed group, who said the ship - called the Galaxy Leader - was linked to Israel.

Israel said the ship was not Israeli, and a Japanese government spokesperson said it was operated by Nippon Yusen.
