The UK says it warned the Houthis before the air strikes

(CNN)– The UK gave the Houthis “repeated warnings” about their actions in the Red Sea before carrying out air strikes in Yemen alongside the US earlier this week, the British Foreign Secretary said on Sunday.

“We have given warning after warning, but the attacks have continued,” David Cameron said on the BBC's Sunday program with Laura Kuenssberg. “We have sent this clear and unambiguous message that we are prepared to follow up on our words and warnings with action.”

The Foreign Minister said that taking military action in response to Houthi attacks on commercial ships in the Red Sea is a “last resort” and that the responsibility for escalation lies with the Houthis.
