A U.S. military supply ship fired at a small boat in the Persian Gulf on Monday after it came too close to the ship, two U.S. officials said. One person aboard the boat was apparently killed.
The USNS Rappahannock, a fuel resupply ship, fired on what is described by the officials as a small white pleasure craft 10 miles outside the Dubai port of Jebel Ali.
The U.S. ship verbally warned the boat and fired at least one warning shot before the decision was made to fire shots to disable the boat. Officials described the course of events as standard procedure when a small boat gets too close to a U.S. Navy ship.
