Oct 13: Here’s video of Iranian tanker SABITI, taken on Oct 12 or 13, in southern Red sea – tanker damaged by something, rockets or whatever, in starboard fore cargo tanks area (at least two holes can be clearly seen), leaking oil while she sails.

Oct 12 UPDATE: According to French news agency QUEST FRANCE, Martinique Prefect, one FRANCK ROBINE, on Oct 11 called SAR off, because he, Franck Robine, doesn’t believe there’s any chance of finding survivors or dead bodies, or anything at all. Judging from his photo in full uniform, he’s something of a super admiral or general, or just super, so he surely, should know better than we do. He already knew it all on Oct 4, when SAR was suspended first time – and who knows the results of search if SAR wasn’t called off, if Navy frigate with helicopter, and surveillance planes, were present. Now France is calling SAR off second time, and that decision seems to be final. Let’s recall VLOC STELLAR DAISY disaster, which occurred deep in South Atlan. 10/11/2019 11:10

Crude oil tanker SINOPA suffered explosion in cargo tanks area, followed by fire, in reportedly, early morning Oct 11, while sailing in Red sea SW of Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. Understood from Iranian sources, hull was breached, oil is leaking from cargo tank or tanks into the sea. Tanker was sailing to Suez, most probably from Iranian oil terminal in Persian Gulf. Tanker history track is missing, with Dalian recorded as last port of call, in April this year. After that date, no AIS records are visible.

Latest AIS signal was recorded at around 1330 UTC Oct 10, tanker was moving at 8.6 knots speed in Suez Canal direction. FleetMon Vessel R. 10/10/2019 11:33
BOURBON RHODE Oct 10 UPDATE: Search continuing with several ships engaged in SAR, see screenshot below. Oct 9 satellite image showed an object which may be life raft, and of course, it stoked SAR and hopes of all concerned. It is said, that French Government and BOURBON Company are under constant pressure to continue SAR, and they in their turn, make everything possible to go on with search. On the other hand, most indispensable asset for a deep-ocean SAR, is available but not deployed. I mean French Navy ships, namely frigates, with helicopters on board. There’s at least one idling at Capo Verde, and we don’t know, where is another one, VENTOSE, the one which participated in first stage of SAR, until it was suspended. Planes deployment is
