Did Iran attack Japanese oil tanker in Strait of Hormuz
The Christian Science Monitor

Some are pointing fingers at Iran, which has threatened to close off the strategic Strait of Hormuz in retaliation for sanctions, for denting a Japanese oil tanker this week. Some 40 percent of the world's oil shipments pass through the strait.

A sea mine may have been responsible for denting a 160,000-ton Japanese oil tanker in the Strait of Hormuz this week, investigators in the United Arab Emirates said Thursday, although the boat's owner maintains it was likely attacked.
