Pompeo again blames Iran for tankers' attack

Pompeo, Iran

Washington : US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Sunday reiterated his stance over recent attacks on two oil tankers near the Strait of Hormuz and blamed Iran for tankers' attack.

"These were attacks by the Islamic Republic of Iran on commercial shipping on the freedom of navigation, with the clear intent to deny transit through the strait," The Hill quoted Pompeo as saying.

"The intelligence community has lots of data, lots of evidence," he said. "The American people should rest assured we have high confidence with respect to who conducted these attacks."

Last week, two oil tankers-- Marshall Islands-flagged Front Altair and the Panama-flagged Kokuka Courageous-- were attacked near the Strait of Hormuz. ANI
