Attacks on civilian vessels like the two oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman are completely unacceptable and Britain is ready to assist in any investigation into the incident, a spokesman for Prime Minister Theresa May said. Thursday's attacks left one tanker ablaze and both adrift, shipping firms said. "Attacks on civilian vessels like these are completely unacceptable," the spokesman told reporters. "It's vital that freedom of navigation is respected and observed. We are in contact with international partners and are ready to assist in any rescue effort or investigation."
