‘Fuente exterior" causa explosión de buque petrolero en Arabia Saudí

December 14, 2020 - Un buque petrolero sufrió una explosión frente a la ciudad portuaria de Yeda en Arabia Saudí el lunes por la mañana tras ser alcanzado por "una fuente exterior", informó una compañía naviera, sugiriendo que otra embarcación ha sido blanco de ataque frente a la costa del reino en medio de su guerra de años en Yemen.

The Singapore-flagged BW Rhine saw all 22 sailors on board escape without injury, the BW Group said in a statement. The company warned it was possible some oil leaked out from the site of the blast.

Saudi Arabia did not immediately acknowledge the blast, which struck off a crucial port and distribution centre for its oil trade. Last month, a mine damaged another tanker off Saudi Arabia in an attack that authorities blamed on Yemen's Iran-backed Houthi rebels.
