Britain tells UN 'highly likely' Iran behind deadly tanker attack

·1 min read

NEW YORK, Aug 3 (Reuters) - Britain, Romania and Liberia told the United Nations Security Council on Tuesday that it was "highly likely" that Iran used one or more drones to carry out a deadly tanker attack last week off the coast of Oman.

"This attack disrupted and posed a risk to the safety and security of international shipping and was a clear violation of international law," the countries said in a letter to the 15-member council, which was seen by Reuters. "This act must be condemned by the international community."
