Seabed warfare: Did Houthi rebels attack undersea cables in Red Sea?

In this Science segment, we take a look at the alleged sabotage of undersea cables in the Red Sea by Yemen's Houthi rebels, after an incident back in February. Washington says the cables were deliberately cut by the rebels to disrupt the global internet, but maritime experts believe it was an accident, and that the anchor of the sunken Rubymar cargo ship snagged the cables as it dragged along the seafloor. The Rubymar sank in early March after it was damaged by missiles fired by the Houthis on February 18.
