Islamist group claims tanker attack
A militant Islamist group has claimed responsibility for the explosion aboard an oil tanker in the Strait of Hormuz near Oman last month.
In a statement posted on various websites that regularly carry messages from al Qaeda leaders, the Abdullah Azzam Brigades included a picture of a man they claimed carried out a suicide attack on the tanker on July 28.
The group said the attack was intended to "strike an economic blow to the infidels."

Are they serious?? A suicide bomber snuck on board, blew himself up in a random segment of the back end of the tanker, somehow causing an implosion of the hull?
