Some media reports, quoting residents and fishermen, earlier claimed that at least 20 Indian nationals were killed in air strikes by Saudi-led coalition forces on fuel smugglers at Yemen's Hodeidah port today.

They claimed two boats were hit in the attack on an area called al-Khokha near Hodeidah port.

India does not have Embassy in Yemen, which was shut down in April after evacuation of its nationals.
