DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — New satellite photos obtained by The Associated Press show the oil tankers that Gulf officials alleged were the targets of "sabotage" off the coast of the United Arab Emirates.
The images, provided Tuesday by Colorado-based Maxar Technologies, show the oil tankers. Two are from Saudi Arabia, one is Norwegian and the other is Emirati.
A boom surrounds the Emirati oil tanker, suggesting officials worry about an oil leak from the vessel.
Otherwise, the vessels do not show any sign of massive damage. The Norweigan ship sustained a hole just above its hull in the incident.
A U.S. official, who spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity to discuss the ongoing investigation, said all the ships sustained similar damage.
