The 23 crew members of one of the oil tankers involved in a suspected attack in the Gulf of Oman were filmed sitting in a room in Iran's city port of Jask on Thursday, after they were rescued earlier in the day.
The two ships, one carrying oil and the other a cargo of chemicals, were reportedly attacked in the Strait of Hormuz earlier on Thursday.
Crews from the Marshall Islands-flagged Front... Еще Altair and the Panamanian-flagged ship Kokuka Courageous reportedly abandoned the ships after the blasts.
Despite Iranian media reporting that the crews of both vessels had been rescued by Tehran, the US Navy contradicted these reports and said that 21 of the rescued sailors were onboard a US military vessel.
The cause of the incident, which happened outside the Strait of Hormuz, is not yet clear.
