WASHINGTON - Iranian ships are moving northeast away from Yemen, a US official said on Thursday after a convoy of Iranian cargo ships prompted US concerns that Tehran was sending weapons into region.

The official, speaking on condition of anonymity, called the move a "promising sign" but said the United States would continue to monitor to see if the ship's course continued.

President Barack Obama said on Tuesday the US government had warned Iran not to send weapons to Yemen that could be used to threaten shipping traffic in the Gulf.
