Officials report tanker incident in Gulf of Oman

The United Kingdom Marine Trade Operations (UKMTO) reported on Tuesday that it was aware of a "non-piracy" incident that is currently taking place in the Gulf of Oman, 61 nautical miles away from Fujairah in the United Arab Emirates.

According to the body, an investigation is currently underway to determine what the incident was about and provided no details on the vessel or vessels involved. In the meantime, it advised ships that are in the area to exercise "extreme caution."

The area has been under increased scrutiny ever since the Mercer Street oil tanker was attacked off the coast of Oman.
