WASHINGTON (Dispatches) -- U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo claimed on Wednesday that U.S. and partner forces seized a boat in June carrying Iranian weapons to Houthi fighters in Yemen as he renewed his call for the UN Security Council to extend an arms embargo on Iran.
 "The Security Council must extend the arms embargo on Iran to prevent further conflict in the region,” Pompeo told a State Department news conference. "No serious person can possibly believe Iran will use any weapon it receives for peaceful ends.”
