An Iranian cargo ship was possibly blown up in the southern Iraqi port of Um Qasr in Batzra on Saturday, according to Arabic news sources. The explosion was caused by a truck bomb. There are conflicting reports on different Arabic sites as to the extent of the damage, and if the ship itself was blown up, or just some of the ship’s containers.
