At least one person was killed and others were believed injured on Monday when a security team aboard a U.S. Navy ship fired at an approaching motor boat off the United Arab Emirates, a U.S. official told Reuters, speaking on condition of anonymity.

The official said the information was based on preliminary reports. The Navy had earlier confirmed the incident but declined to provide details on casualties, saying only that the boat had ignored repeated warnings to halt its approach.
