    Attack on Tankers in Gulf of Oman (61)

    Earlier in the day, Iranian and Arabic media outlets reported that two successive blasts had hit two oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman in what was described as "attacks" against the vessels.

    Iran's Press TV outlet has published on Twitter aerial footage of the "attacked" tanker, clearly showing the vessel to be still afloat, while earlier in the day several media outlets claimed that one of the attacked tankers had sunk. 

    On Thursday, two oil tankers operated by shipping companies Frontline and Bernhard Schulte were damaged in a suspected attack near the Strait of Hormuz, the most important oil artery in the world.
