May 15 , 2015
Five Iranian boats reportedly fired shots in the Persian Gulf near a cargo vessel.
It was not immediately clear if any of the rounds hit the Singapore-flagged Alpine Eternity; the shots were fired across the bow, according to media reports.
US authorities are looking into the incident, which comes at a time of heightened security concerns in the region.
The incident occurred off the UAE coast but in international waters, reports said.
