Two people were reported killed in an attack on an Israeli oil tanker off the coast of Oman

Two crew members of an oil tanker belonging to an Israeli company were killed in an attack on the ship in the Arabian Sea, according to the Israeli company, Zodiac Maritime, which operates the tanker.

Zodiac Maritime said one of the dead was British and the other Roman.

The British Ministry of Defense confirmed a previous report issued by the British Maritime Trade Operations Group that an accident occurred late Thursday night near the Omani island of Masirah, but did not provide further details.

London-based Zodiac Maritime said the marine unit involved was the tanker Mercer Street, which it operates but does not own.
