The UK Maritime Commerce Operations has warned of an unspecified incident and is urging “excessive warning”.
The maritime security group put out the alert early this morning.
The Gulf of Oman connects the Arabian Sea with the Strait of Hormuz, which then runs to the Persian Gulf.
It borders Iran and Pakistan on the north, Oman on the south, and the United Arab Emirates on the west.
This can be a breaking story. Extra to comply with.
