Gulf crisis: Close up to stricken oil tanker with the US Navy

The US military says one of the oil tankers attacked in the Gulf of Oman last week was damaged by a mine resembling those used by the Iranian security forces.

The attack was the second such incident in the strategic shipping lane in a month.

Tehran has denied any involvement.

The BBC was one of a small number of media outlets taken out by the US Navy off the coast of the United Arab Emirates to see the stricken ship.
