The US Military states, unexploded device spotted on tanker

The US Military has released a video which allegedly shows Iran's Revolutionary Guard removing an unexploded mine from a tanker attacked in the Gulf of Oman.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has blamed Iran for the attacks yesterday, which involved the Front Altair owned by a Norwegian shipping company and Japanese-owned Kokuka Courageous.
However, he didn't present clear evidence to support the accusation.

The US Central Command said in a statement, the video shows a Revolutionary Guard patrol boat approach the Kokuka Courageous, and remove the mine, nine hours after the attacks. The device is believed to be a limpet mine which can be detonated remotely.
