Adds comment from British government
LONDON, June 13 (Reuters) - Britain said on Thursday it was deeply concerned by reports of explosions and fires on vessels in the Gulf of Oman.
Shipping firms and industry sources said two oil tankers were hit in suspected attacks in the Gulf of Oman and the crews have been evacuated, a month after a similar incident in which four tankers in the region were struck.
"We are deeply concerned by reports of explosions and fires on vessels in the Gulf of Oman. We are in contact with local authorities and partners in the region," a British government spokeswoman said.
