Iranian officials say two missiles have struck an Iranian tanker traveling through the Red Sea off the coast of Saudi Arabia. This is the latest incident in the region amid months of heightened tensions between Tehran and the U.S. There was no immediate word from Saudi Arabia on the reported attack on Friday near the Red Sea port city of Jiddah. The reported attack comes after the U.S. has alleged that in past months Iran attacked oil tankers near the Strait of Hormuz, at the mouth of the Persian Gulf, something denied by Tehran.
