UK maritime safety body investigating ‘incident’ in Gulf of Oman

(CNN)Two tankers were apparently attacked in the Gulf of Oman on Thursday, less than a month after four other ships were struck in the region.

The ships — one carrying oil and the other transporting a cargo of chemicals — were struck in international waters near the strategically important Strait of Hormuz. All crew members were evacuated and were safe, according to the owners of the two ships.
The vessels were hit “at or below the waterline, in close proximity to the engine room,” said the International Association of Independent Tanker Owners (Intertanko). “These appeared to be well-planned and coordinated” attacks.
