MANAMA, Bahrain — The Greek tanker Ethnic, which hit a mine in the Persian Gulf on Tuesday, has anchored off Dubai where divers are inspecting a hole in its starboard tanks, shipping sources said Saturday.

They said the 274,629-ton tanker, carrying about 210,000 tons of Kuwaiti crude oil, arrived in Dubai on Saturday after anchoring off Ras Tanurah, Saudi Arabia, on Thursday.

Divers will check the extent of damage and whether the ship must offload its cargo before sailing for Taiwan, the sources said.
