UK Will Send 100 Royal Marines To Gulf



UK is to send 100 Royal Marines to the Strait of Hormuz in the Persian Gulf to protect British ships, as the fallout from the attack on two tankers last week escalates.

As the pressure increases after Norwegian and Japanese oil tankers were attacked last week, Britain has joined the US, Saudi Arabia and others in accusing Iran of carrying out the attacks.

Thursday’s attacks were the second time in little over a month that an oil tankers have been attacked in the region. On May 12 four ships were sabotaged in the Gulf of Oman, two from the UAE and one from Saudi Arabia and Norway.
