  • Explosions sur un tanker iranien de possibles frappes de missile

Un tanker iranien a été touché ce vendredi par deux frappes de missile présumées à une centaine de kilomètres du port saoudien de Jeddah, causant une fuite de pétrole dans la mer Rouge, a indiqué son propriétaire.

"Aucun membre d'équipage n'a été blessé (...) La situation est sous contrôle", précise l'agence de presse Nour, proche des gardiens de la révolution, en expliquant que les personnes à bord tentaient de réparer les dégâts. Sur des photographies qu'elle a diffusées, le pont du navire ne parait pas endommagé.

Il rappelle en outre que le WTI et le Brent "étaient déjà en hausse en raison des espoirs sur le commerce sino-américain, et l'attaque sur le tanker n'a fait qu'alimenter ce mouvement", selon lui.

"La responsabilité de cet incident, et la sérieuse pollution de l'environnement, incombent aux auteurs de cet acte irresponsable", a affirmé le porte-parole du ministère des Affaires étrangères Abbas Mousavi, ajoutant qu'une enquête était en cours.

L'incident de vendredi est le dernier d'une longue série dans la région, après notamment des attaques en Arabie saoudite, des saisies de pétroliers dans le Golfe et la destruction d'un drone américain par Téhéran. Fin septembre, la France, l'Allemagne, l'Arabie saoudite, les États-Unis et le Royaume-Uni avaient accusé l'Iran d'être derrière l'attaque du 14 septembre contre des installations pétrolières saoudiennes, ce que Téhéran a formellement démenti.

Norwegian Spirit returning passengers talk of 'disaster' cruise
A Norwegian Cruise Line spokesperson said: "Unfortunately, Norwegian Spirit's itinerary was impacted by weather conditions". Other passengers described their experience on the luxury ship as "the worst trip of [their] lives".

L'attaque présumée intervient après que les États-Unis eurent affirmé que l'Iran avait attaqué ces derniers mois des pétroliers près du détroit d'Hormuz, à l'embouchure du golfe Persique, ce que Téhéran a démenti.

Après les attaques de septembre, Washington avait affirmé être "prêt à riposter" et annoncé l'envoi de renforts militaires dans la région. Le président américain Donald Trump avait dit avoir annulé in extremis des frappes contre des cibles iraniennes après que Téhéran eut abattu un drone américain.

Washington a depuis formé une coalition militaire maritime pour protéger la navigation, rejointe par Ryad et Abou Dhabi.

L'Iran a lui présenté un projet régional afin d'assurer "la sécurité énergétique et la liberté de navigation" dans les eaux du Golfe.
