Mine fragments, magnet point to Iran in Gulf tanker attack: US Navy
The United States Navy Wednesday displayed limpet mine fragments and a magnet removed from one of two oil tankers attacked in the Gulf of Oman last week, saying the mines bore a striking resemblance to Iranian ones.

"The limpet mine that was used in the attack is distinguishable and also strikingly bearing a resemblance to Iranian mines that have already been publicly displayed in Iranian military parades," said Commander Sean Kido, the commanding officer of an explosive ordinance dive and salvage task group in the Naval Forces Central Command (NAVCENT).

He spoke to reporters at a NAVCENT facility near the United Arab Emirates' Fujairah port.
