An Iranian oil tanker struck a U.S. Navy destroyer yesterday in the northern Persian Gulf, punching a two-foot hole in the destroyer's side but causing no injuries, U.S. military officials said.

The USS Paul Hamilton was in no danger and continued operating after the collision, the officials said. The hole in the all-steel hull was above the water line.

There was no indication of hostile action by the Iranian vessel, officials said.

The Paul Hamilton has been conducting maritime intercept operations in the Gulf in support of the global war on terrorism.
