German "BILD" Zeitung and ageny REUTERS inform that 2 Tankers are attacked in the Gulf of Oman

Tanker Kokuka Courageous from German Schulte Reederei seems to be on fire, the ship is evacuated One of the 21 crew memeber has a small injury. The rest is ok.
                                                             

the other tanker is from Frontline.

It seems they were attacked by torpedos.

I'm far away from the sea to Hamburg I have a longer distance as to Venice or Genova.
My favorite is the Suezchannel, Panamacannal  and since 2006 also Chinese harbours. I've a lot of pictures and I don't show them because here at shipspotting.com is a copyright problem
