India says the bodies of six Indian seamen have been recovered three days after their boats were hit by airstrikes in the waters between Somalia and Yemen.

India's External Affairs Ministry says that one Indian is still missing and its embassy in Yemen's camp office in Djibouti is working with local authorities to determine his whereabouts.

Two boats carrying 21 Indians were struck Tuesday. Fourteen were rescued, the ministry said in a statement in New Delhi on Friday.

India didn't say what the boats were doing in that area or who carried out the airstrikes.

Yemeni coast guard officials said a Saudi-led coalition attacked more than five boats off the Yemeni coast on Tuesday.
