Yutaka Katada, the owner of one of the stricken fuel tankers crippled in explosions in the Gulf of Oman on Thursday, says the U.S. is wrong about the way the attack was carried out.
Katada said his ship was attacked on the starboard side by a flying object, not by a mine.
“It seems that something flew towards them.
