US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has blamed Iran for a “blatant assault” on two oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman.

He said the US had made its assessment based on intelligence about the type of weapons used.

A senior Iranian official earlier told the BBC: “Iran has no connection with the incident.”

Dozens of crew members were rescued after explosions on the Japanese-owned Kokuka Courageous and the Front Altair, owned by Norway.
