US Navy ship 'fires on boat in Gulf'

One person had been killed and three hurt

BBC: A US ship has fired on a boat off the coast of the United Arab Emirates, US officials say. The USNS Rappahannock fired on a vessel after it ignored warnings and rapidly approached the ship, a US Navy official said. There is no confirmation of casualties although AP news agency reported one person had been killed and three hurt. Tensions in the Gulf region are high after Iran recently renewed threats to close the strategic Strait of Hormuz. Lt Greg Raelson of the US Navy in Bahrain said that a security team on board the ship fired on a small motor boat after it disregarded warnings and "rapidly approached" the US ship near Jebel Ali, UAE >>>
