KUWAIT — This country has placed a second oil tanker under the British flag to qualify for Royal Navy protection against Iranian attacks in the Persian Gulf, shipping officials said Monday. They added that a third Kuwaiti tanker will be re-registered in Britain soon.

The sources said the Kuwait Oil Tanker Co. recently re-registered the 27,841-ton refined products carrier Ras al Jlayah under Britain's Red Ensign as the Chilham Castle.
