8:02 pm
has described the incident as an attack the 2nd ship involved in the incident was the japanese called courageous both tankers had departed from saudi arabia and both sent out an emergency signal at roughly 6 am i don't think we have more missions now we will have to look. for weeks ago a suspected sabotage attack on 4 tank is raised tensions in the region 2 tankers were badly damaged but the details surrounding these explosions also remain unclear . the usa has accused iran of being behind that incident saying they were acts of revenge for u.s. sanctions on iran iran denies this experts fear today's explosions will only heighten tensions in the gulf region even further so tensions between individual gulf states and washington could escalate if the usa continues to take a hard line on iran iran will focus on making washington look bad in front of the

international community and its allies. iran has rejected any responsibility for the explosions t.v. stations have reported authorities have launched an investigation into the incident and teams of experts have already arrived at the scene let's get more on this from atlanta battered by political analyst specializing on iraq welcome to a d w who is likely to have done this and why we in fact have 3 sets of actors that could be behind this obviously iran could try to escalate the situation in response to the u.s. maximum pressure compay new cold economic warfare against the country we have iran survivals in the region that may want to drag through a false flag operation want to drag iran the us into war with iran and then we have a whole range of terrorist or militant groups in the region that may also seek to escalate the tensions in the region so it's very difficult to really look at who
8:04 pm
has been behind this attack why is it so difficult because. the u.a.e. has been saying of the last months attack that it blames state actors for that attack you can't launch one of these attacks against these enormous vessels with just a bit of string and a boat to boat down the road these takes organization why is it so difficult to pin down who's behind it. interesting leigh that that report fall short of blaming a specific country or iran of that attack and unfortunately the situation in the region the such that states equipped militant groups with these kinds of equipment and but we cannot exclude anything so we should be prepared for any theory behind this and unless we see actual evidence we can only speculate about who was behind it it is interesting the speculation is that you know as you say that the u.a.e. did not name any names the united states has blamed iran for the 12th of may
8:05 pm
attacks without providing that evidence. this is going to ratchet up the tensions between the 2 isn't it yeah i mean we see a situation where ambiguity seems to be a strategy or at least in the communication to keep things ambiguous and even the u.s. said it's almost certain that iran was behind it and that makes the whole situation a bit volatile and big ambiguous as i said and leaves us with with a lot of question marks and that the u.s. navy's 5th fleet is in the region and actually took part in part of the rescues today. escalation is is a significant possibility in this. we actually saw a lot of efforts in the past weeks by regional countries such as oman kuwait and iraq but also the japanese prime minister is currently in tehran the german foreign
8:06 pm
minister was there to in fact make sure that there are sent messages sent back and forth between tehran and washington and i personally actually believe that they have had a major impact into trying to avoid that kind of escalation which makes today's incident even more questionable with regards to who really was behind it you have to live with the mystery from the iran analyst adamant about by thank you. honest take a look at some of the other stories making news around the world prosecutors in sudan have charge former president omar al bashir with corruption but he was deposed by the sudanese military in april since when more than 100 people died in clashes between security forces and protesters demanding civilian rule. the british government has approved the extradition of wiki leaks founder julian assange is to the united states mr soldiers lawyers are expected to challenge the decision which has to be approved by a court with
