2 tankers catch fire after an attack in the Gulf of Oman

Tankers the Front Altair and the Kokuka Courageous have sustained significant fire damage and its crews have been evacuated following an attack, according to shipping agents. U.S. Naval ships in the area are "rendering assistance" after forces in the region received two separate distress calls, say U.S. officials. The cause of the fire remains unclear, but has sparked fears of attack and comes just weeks after alleged ship sabotage in the region.
