At US request, UN Security Council to discuss situation in Gulf

UNITED NATIONS — The UN Security Council will discuss today the situation in the Gulf following suspected attacks on two oil tankers, at the request of the United States, diplomats says.

The closed-door meeting is called after a Norwegian-owned tanker and a Singapore-owned ship were attacked in the Gulf of Oman, a month after explosions damaged four oil tankers off the coast of the United Arab Emirates.
