Strait of Hormuz open after ships collide

The Omani coastguards has said an oil tanker has collided with a US Navy ship near the Strait of Hormuz but no one was hurt and shipping traffic in the waterway, through which 40% of the world's seaborne oil exports pass, was not affected, Reuters has reported. "Both vessels are okay and the Strait of Hormuz is not closed, and business is as usual there," an Oman coastguard official told the news service. The oil tanker, owned by Japan's Mitsui OSK, was bound for the UAE port of Fujairah from Mesaieed in Qatar, according to ship tracking websites.
