Two Navy SEALs who went missing off the coast of Somalia are now presumed dead by U.S. Central Command.
The search for the two unnamed sailors was called off after a ten-day search. Both were involved in a mission to stop a ship containing the parts for medium-range Iranian ballistic missiles, which was en route to Somalia. They tried to board the ship to take it over, which concluded in a successful raid of the weaponry, but ultimately, they went missing and were presumed to be lost at sea.
U.S. military alleged the ship was on its way to meet Iran-supported Houthi rebels before it was boarded, with the ship carrying missiles similar to the ones used against cargo ships in the Red Sea.
