Pompeo Blames Iran for Tanker Attacks
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo blames Tehran for Thursday’s attacks on two oil tankers in a strategic sea lane off the coast of Iran. Pompeo told reporters these are just the latest unprovoked attacks that are a clear threat to international peace and security. Iran denies responsibility and says its navy rescued 44 crew members from the tankers. The U.S. confirms some crew members are in Iranian custody. VOA’s diplomatic correspondent Cindy Saine has more from the State Department.
