Unconfirmed Reports Of Oil Tanker Attacked Off Saudi Coast 

Maritime intelligence firm Dryad Global received "unconfirmed reports" that an oil tanker, possibly named "NCC Dammam," has been attacked off the Saudi Red Sea port of Yanbu.

Strategic Risk Consultancy MENA tweeted that "for three and a half hours the NCC DAMMAM has been showing the status of 'Not Under Command' on Marine Traffic."

Refinitiv vessel-tracking data shows around 0242GMT, the vessel deviated off course and began sailing in a zig-zag formation as speed dramatically slowed to less than a knot. The ship was en route to the port of Yanbu al-Bahr, Saudi Arabia, but appears to be stopped.
