DUBAI, June 14 (Reuters) - Iran said on Friday it had dispatched experts to one oil tanker from which it rescued crew members from a fire caused by an attack to see whether they could now return to the vessel.
The European Union has called for maximum restraint amid mounting tensions over U.S. accusations against Iran over attacks on two oil tankers on Thursday in the Gulf of Oman. Iran has denied responsibility for the attacks.
"Fire has been contained on both tankers...We have sent experts to evaluate whether the crew rescued by Iran can return to (one) tanker," Allahmorad Afifipour, head of ports in the Iranian coastal province of Hormozgan, told Tasnim news agency.
Iranian search and rescue teams picked up 44 sailors from the two damaged tankers, the official Islamic Republic News Agency IRNA reported on Thursday. The sailors were taken to the Iranian Gulf port of Jask, it said. (Writing by Parisa Hafezi Editing by Mark Heinrich)
