ImageSANAA, Oct 26 (Reuters) – Yemen has seized a vessel carrying weapons believed to be destined for Shi'ite rebels in the north of the country and detained its Iranian crew, a provincial Yemeni official told Reuters on Monday.

Central government officials declined immediate comment.

"The five crew members are being questioned. They are Iranians," said the official in Haja province, which borders Saada province, site of most of the fighting between government forces and the rebels.

Yemen sees the hand of Iran behind the rebellion but Tehran denies any role. Yemeni government officials have said Iranian media supports the rebels and President Ali Abdullah Saleh has suggested that Iranian religious figures provide funding.
