- Story Text:Saudi Arabian authorities on Friday (September 20) showed the damage caused by an air strike to an Aramco oil facility, with local and international journalists flown to see the site.
The United States has been discussing with Saudi Arabia and other Gulf allies possible responses to Saturday's (September 14) attack, which they blame on Iran and which U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo described as an act of war on the kingdom.
Iran denies the accusations and said any U.S. or Saudi military strike against it would bring "all-out war". Yemen's Houthi rebels claimed responsibility immediately after the attack, but Saudi Arabia says it has evidence that proves Iran was behind the strike.
