    US releases video it claims shows Iran removing unexploded mine from Gulf tanker


    By Barbara Starr, Devan Cole and Eliza Mackintosh, CNN
    Updated 8:32 AM ET, Fri June 14, 2019


    (CNN) The United States has blamed Iran for an attack on two tankers in the Gulf of Oman, releasing video footage that it claims shows an Iranian patrol boat removing an exploded mine from one of the vessels' hulls.

    On Thursday night, US Central Command released a video which it said shows Iranian sailors removing a mine from the Kokura Courageous' hull

    A senior diplomatic source of a US ally told CNN Friday, "It is a virtual certainty Iran was behind this latest attack. The video now nails it."

    The source added that the goal of the response from the US government thus far is all about publicly exposing Iranian actions and intensifying maximum pressure.

    I'm not saying that Iran is never responsible for this type of attack, but in this case I don't think they are. I would look to see who has the most to lose by Iran having an oil deal with Japan.
    Now it's shaping-up as Who's going to rescue the sailors who Iran rescued ? They're Norwegian-citizens, who essentially witnessed Iranian personnel removing unexploded mines from the stricken tanker.

    The sailors haven't been released yet, as far as I can find out.
