 qCaptain posted on 19 June 2024 an article titled "Shipping Industry Calls for Action after Tutor Sinking in Red Sea" by Mike Schuler.

The Liberian-flagged and Greek-owned coal carrier, M/V Tutor, discussed on 16 June below has now sunk in the Red Sea.  The Houthis also severely damaged the Palauan-flagged, Ukrainian-owned, and Polish-operated M/V Verbena.

Shipping industry groups issued a joint statement calling on "states with influence in the region" to safeguard seafarers and de-escalate the situation.
