Gulf of Oman tanker 'attacks': Crews rescued amid rising tensions

Two oil tankers have been significantly damaged in suspected attacks in the Gulf of Oman.

The Japanese-owned Kokuka Courageous with 23 crew members aboard and Norway's Front Altair with 23 people were abandoned after the blasts. Iran and the US say they evacuated the crew.

It is unclear what caused the blasts coming amid high US-Iran tensions.

A senior Iranian official told the BBC: "Iran has no connection with the incident."

The suspected attack in one of the world's busiest oil routes comes a month after four oil tankers were attacked off the United Arab Emirates.
