CAIRO (Reuters) -British security firm Ambrey said on Sunday that it had received a report that a Yemeni fishing vessel had been hijacked in the Gulf of Aden.

"Crew on board the fishing vessel were off-boarded in Bosaso, Somalia. One crew member was shot," Ambrey said in an advisory note.

Ambrey does not assess a heightened threat posed by this vessel, as it is believed the incident was related to a row between two parties.

"Ambrey understands that the incident was not Somali piracy-related, but related to a dispute between Yemeni fishermen and a local armed group operating west of Bosaso," it updated later.

"The Yemeni crew member shot during the incident has since died in Bosaso," it said, adding that the vessel, which has 21 Yemenis aboard, is expected to return to Yemen on March 18.

The Houthis, who control the most populous parts of Yemen, have launched exploding drones and missiles at commercial vessels, transiting the Red Sea, since Nov. 19 as a protest against Israel's military operations in Gaza.
