Limpet mines were used to blow holes in tankers in UAE, say divers examining four sabotaged ships as US and Iran try to calm fears of war after Saudi Arabia claimed explosive-laden drones targeted its oil pipeline in 'act of terrorism'

The sabotage attacks on Saudi oil tankers in the Gulf of Yemen were carried out using limpet mines, experts believe.

The mysterious 'sabotage' has sent tensions spiralling in the Middle East as the U.S. blamed Iran and its allies for the attack - which divers said appeared to be the work of magnetic explosives.

Amid a furious exchange of words, a key adviser to Iranian president Rouhani warned of a looming conflict and mocked Trump ally John Bolton, saying: 'That's what happens when you listen to the mustache.'

Tensions had heightened further today after two pumping stations on a major Saudi oil pipeline were attacked by explosive-laden drones, halting the flow of crude along it.
