Earlier in the day, the UK maritime trade authority reported an explosion near the port of the Saudi Arabian city of Jeddah. An investigation was launched into the case.

A video has emerged online purportedly showing the explosion aboard a tanker off the Saudi port city of Jeddah. The footage, which has yet to be verified, shows thick black smoke rising from the vessel, which, according to the shipping company, was hit from an external source while discharging in Jeddah at around 00:40 local time (21:40 GMT).

Oil tanker operator Hafnia also added that water ballast and cargo tanks on the port side sustained damages, but no crew member of the Singapore-flagged BW Rhine oil tanker was injured as a result of the explosion.
