British security worker killed in oil tanker drone attack
A Hereford company has said one of its workers has been killed in an attack on an oil tanker. Iran's ambassador to the UK has been summoned to the Foreign Office following the attack on the tanker.
The UK said it was highly likely that Iran was behind the drone strike on the MV Mercer Street off the coast of Oman.
British maritime security firm Ambrey, based in Rotherwas, said the attack, which saw a hole blasted through the vessel's bridge, killed one of its employees on board.
The Mercer Street is managed by London-based Zodiac Maritime, part of Israeli billionaire Eyal Ofer's Zodiac Group.
