UAE emirate of Fujairah denies media reports about blasts at Fujairah port

DUBAI, May 12 (Reuters) - The government of Fujairah, a member of the United Arab Emirates federation, denied on Sunday media reports about blasts at the port of Fujairah, according to a statement tweeted by its media office.

The statement didn’t identify the media outlets that published these reports but the Iranian Press TV website cited a Lebanese broadcaster Mayadeen saying seven oil tankers were attacked in the port. “The media office of the government of Fujairah denies the veracity of the media reports saying strong explosions rocked the port of Fujairah this morning,” it said. “The operations at the port are going as usual.” (Reporting by Maher Chmaytelli; Editing by Toby Chopra)
