US Says Video Shows Iran Removing Unexploded Mine From Tanker

Military Times

The United States has released a video which it claims shows Iran's Revolutionary Guard (IRGC) removing an unexploded mine from one of the two tankers hit by explosions in the Gulf of Oman.

"At 4:10pm local time [00:10 GMT] an IRGC Gashti Class patrol boat approached the M/T Kokuka Courageous and was observed and recorded removing the unexploded limpet mine from the M/T Kokuka Courageous (video attached)," Navy Captain Bill Urban, a spokesman for the US military's Central Command, said in a statement late on Thursday.

Washington believes the pictures clearly show members of the Iranian elite force approaching the vessel and removing what it claims is a limpet mine, Al Jazeera reports
