First reports:  Explosions on supertankers in Arabian Sea

According to unconfirmed reports, massive explosions were sighted early Thursday on two supertankers sailing in the Arabian Sea. Distress calls were received in Pakistani and Omani ports. The British navy’s Maritime Trade Operations put out an alert for an “unspecified incident” in the Gulf of Oman and urged “extreme caution.” The US Navy’s Bahrain based 5th Fleet has not responded to requests for a response.

Four oil tankers were recently sabotaged off the UAE coast in an attack attributed to Iran.

    Very dangerous behaviour. One need to be held responsible for the consequences.
