LONDON (Reuters) - A Saudi oil tanker hit by Yemen’s Houthi group on Tuesday was the vessel Abqaiq, the EU naval force said on Wednesday.
Shipping data showed the vessel was a Saudi-flagged super tanker capable of carrying 2 million barrels of oil.
Its owner, Saudi shipping group Bahri, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
