CNN report the news four US officials:

  • United States has video and photos that show an Iranian navy boat removing an unexploded mine attached to the hull of the Japanese-owned chemical tanker Kokura Courageous
  • One of the officials said a US military aircraft overhead recorded a full motion video of an Iranian boat moving alongside one of the stricken tankers and removing an unexploded limpet mine from its hull. 
  • The official said the imagery shows a person on board that small boat grabbing the unexploded mine.

The oil market had a response to the news overnight but FX didn't do too much. Complacent? 

Is this video going to be laying some work for some US response to the attack?
