Amver tanker, attacked?

Various news agencies have reported the Amver participating tanker M. Star suffered damage after a possible attack in the Straight of Hormuz. MOL stated in a company press release that their ship was attacked at approximately 0530 hours local time while sailing to the port of Fujairah in the United Arab Emirates. The release went on to say that the damage seemed to come from an "... external attack..."

The Marshall Island flagged tanker enrolled in the Amver system in December, 2008 and has earned two Amver participation awards.

It is unclear who attacked the M. Star. What are your thoughts on the damage?
