WASHINGTON (AFP) - A US patrol boat fired a warning flare to repel three approaching speed boats in the Gulf, the Navy said Friday, where Iranian vessels have in the past played cat-and-mouse with passing US warships.
The USS Typhoon, a Coast Guard patrol boat, was heading from the central to the northern Gulf when it was approached late Thursday by the high-speed boats, said Lieutenant Nathan Christensen, a spokesman for the US Fifth Fleet.
However, a source in the navy of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards denied Friday there had been any "confrontation" with US ships, according to Iran's Al-Alam Arabic television.
"The source denied any kind of confrontation between Iranian high speed vessels and US ships," the state-run satellite channel said.
It quoted the source as saying: "In the past two days, the identification was carried out according to the routine and the two US ships were allowed to continue along their path."
