A burst of superheated steam killed 10 American sailors Tuesday in a boiler-room accident aboard a Navy assault ship, forcing a scale-back of a new exercise testing a possible amphibious landing in the Persian Gulf conflict. The break in a high-pressure steam line came just minutes after the 29-year-old Iwo Jima pulled out of port in Manama, Bahrain, where it had undergone five days of repairs, according to military officials here.

U.S. and Australian warships fired across the bow of an Iraqi oil tanker in the Gulf of Oman on Friday and then boarded the vessel in an incident that ended a monthlong cease-fire in the sea blockade and raised prospects for new hostilities in the Persian Gulf crisis. The confrontation came after the Iraq-bound tanker, in a sharp departure after weeks of Iraqi cooperation, ignored repeated demands that it halt and submit to a search, the Pentagon said.
