The U.S. Fifth Fleet said it was assisting two ships after they were evacuated in the Gulf of Oman amid claims one was hit by a torpedo (pictured, a photo purporting to show stricken vessel Front Altair).
Few details as yet but needless to say everyone is on high alert. They were seemingly hit with explosives but that has not been confirmed. According to the link the two are adrift in the gulf of Oman and on fire. Last week the Houthis claimed they damaged 2 Saudi tankers.
