CARL AZUZ: This Tuesday
on CNN 10-- strains,

sabotage, and one small step.
I'm Carl Azuz.
Always glad to
have you watching.

US Secretary of
State Mike Pompeo

had been planning a trip to
Moscow, Russia this week.

Yesterday he canceled
it, and instead

headed to Brussels, Belgium.
That's where the leaders of
the United Kingdom, Germany,

and France were scheduled to
discuss international tensions

with Iran.
And the US Secretary of
State decided to join them.

US military officials recently
said they had intelligence

that Iran and groups that
operate beneath its military

were planning to target US
troops in the Middle East

and at sea.
In response, America sent
warships, bomber planes,

and other military equipment
to the Strait of Hormuz,

a narrow passage of
water that borders Iran.

Now US intelligence indicates
Iran may be putting missiles

aboard small Iranian
boats in the Persian Gulf,

and the US is moving missiles
of its own to the region.

An American military
official says

they're defensive in nature.
But the US says that
the threat from Iran

is still real and
credible, and that America

is taking it seriously.
With tensions simmering
between those two countries,

an official with the
British government

is calling for a period of calm.
JEREMY HUNT: We are very worried
about the risk of a conflict

happening by accident,
with an escalation that

is unintended, really,
on either side,

but ends with some
kind of conflict.

And so we'll be sharing those
concerns with my European

counterparts, with Mike Pompeo.
Secretary Pompeo meets

with those officials in
Belgium, Iran is flexing

its muscles in the Middle East.
FRED PLEITGEN: An Iranian naval
show of force in the Persian

Gulf, just as the US
deployed an aircraft

carrier to the region--
a senior Iranian
Revolutionary Guard commander

going on state TV, saying
American military assets

are in their crosshairs.

FRED PLEITGEN: Imagine this
is their aircraft carrier,

he said.
At least 40 or 50 aircraft are
on board, and 6,000 personnel.

Right now, they're
a target for us.

The US says it urgently
deployed the USS Abraham Lincoln

to the Persian Gulf, and
sent both B-52 bombers

and additional Patriot
anti-aircraft batteries

to the Middle East,
after the US said

it detected Iranian
military movement

that could indicate a threat
to US bases in the region.

Before leaving for
Brussels, Secretary of State

Pompeo with a warning
for the Iranians.

MIKE POMPEO: An attack
on American interests

from an Iranian-led force--
whether it's an Iranian proper

or it's an entity
that is controlled

by the Iranians-- we will
hold the responsible party

FRED PLEITGEN: Iran accuses
the Trump administration

of escalating the situation,
Tehran accusing Washington

of trying to bring
Iran to its knees

through economic and
psychological warfare,

Iranian parliamentarians
telling CNN,

talks with the
Trump administration

are out of the question for now.

FRED PLEITGEN: Americans are
not worth having a dialogue

with, this parliamentarian says.
They can't be trusted for talks.
They're not worthy
of dialogue, and

they lie about their
intentions for meeting

and talking with us.
If they wanted
dialogue, they wouldn't

have threatened us militarily.
With tough talk on both sides,
many Iranians already suffering

under tough US sanctions
are concerned the situation

could escalate into
an armed conflict

with devastating consequences.
Fred Pleitgen, CNN, Tehran.
CARL AZUZ: Meantime, US
President Donald Trump

is warning Iran
not to take action

against American
interests, saying

quote, "If they do anything,
it would be a very bad mistake.

We'll see what happens."
If there is a confrontation
between Iran and the US,

the Middle Eastern
country has threatened

to close the Strait of Hormuz.
That could impact the global
economy, since about 30

There was an incident
earlier this week

involving four
oil-carrying ships

that were near the Strait.
They were apparently targeted
by an act of sabotage.

officials, including

US Secretary of
State Pompeo, are

not saying Iran was behind it.
And Iran's government
called the incidents, quote,

"alarming and regrettable."
But anxiety is
high in the region.

learning is that these four

vessels, these commercial
vessels that were sabotaged--

one of them is this
one, the Al Marzoqah,

a Saudi-registered vessel--
appear to have
had these sabotage

incidents in the early
hours of Sunday morning.

We now know that there
were the four vessels.

Two of them were
registered to Saudi

Arabia, one registered
to the Emirates,

and one registered to Norway.
What appears to have happened--
what we're understanding

and learning-- is that a call
was made in the early hours

of Sunday morning, saying
that water was perhaps getting

into the engine room-- that
something out of the ordinary

was happening.
And over the space of
the next couple of hours,

it appeared that four vessels
out here in the Straits

of Hormuz, off the
port of Fujiwara,

were experiencing some
sort of irregularities.

The Emirati authorities
began investigating.

And that's when they
realized there were

these incidents of sabotage.
Now it's not quite clear yet
what caused this sabotage, how

it was perpetrated, or
even, for that matter,

who perpetrated it.
Emirati authorities
clearly investigating.

But what we know is that
these four vessels out here--

and you can see, across
the horizon here,

there are about 100 or so
vessels parked up here--

that these four
different vessels

that were impacted
by the sabotage

were not in the same place.
They were scattered
throughout the area.

And of course, this
comes at a time

when there's rising
tensions between the United

States and Iran.
The Abraham Lincoln carrier
battle group is on the way

into the area.
Patriot missile battery is
on the way into the area

as well, as well
as B-52 bombers.

The coast of Iran, not
far away from here.

So while the Emirati authorities
continue to investigate,

and we're awaiting the outcome
of that investigation--

not quite clear yet
when it will come.

But while we're waiting for the
outcome of that investigation,

of course, these
sabotage incidents

risk raising tensions.
CARL AZUZ: 10-second trivia.
What was the name of NASA's
last manned mission to the moon?

Luna 2, Apollo 13,
Constellation, or Apollo 17?

The last time a human set
foot on the moon's surface

was during NASA's
Apollo 17 mission.

The first time someone
set foot on the moon

occurred 50 years
ago on July 16, 1969

as part of NASA's
Apollo 11 mission.

NASA estimates that 530
million people around the world

watched on TV or
listened on the radio

as commander Neil Armstrong
took the first steps.

He also took a little bit of
heat over something he said.

Eagle has landed.

Armstrong stepped out

to become the first man on
the moon, not a soul on earth

could have guessed he
would land in the middle

of a cosmic controversy.
one small step for man,

one giant leap for mankind.
TOM FOREMAN: The problem?
The first part of his
historic sentence--

that's one small step for man--
is grammatically incorrect.
It should have been, one
small step for a man.

And that missing
"a" has been setting

off grammarians ever since.
- Liftoff.
The final liftoff of Atlantis.
all the years,

NASA has insisted that
he did say the "a",

and modern microphones
would have picked it up.

Instead the word was lost
on scratchy old equipment,

operating nearly a quarter
million miles away.

And Armstrong,
though he rarely gave

interviews, throughout
his life agreed with NASA.

Thank you so much.

scientists have

tried to analyze the recordings
and break down the sound waves,

with inconclusive results.
But now researchers from
Michigan State and Ohio State

believe they have evidence
that Armstrong's utterance may

have been shaped less by
space than by something

very down-to-earth.
The famous astronaut
was an Ohio boy.

And these researchers
studied hundreds

of recordings of natives
saying the words "for" and "a".

And they found almost 200 times,
the words were pushed together,

making a sound like "fruh."
So listen again.
one small step for man.

the moon trip itself,

the theory may be a long shot.
But it could also prove
the final word on the words

of the man on the moon.
- Beautiful, just beautiful.
Foreman, CNN, Washington.

CARL AZUZ: Maybe you've heard
of gorillas in the mist.

This video proves they
don't like the rain.

At least, these gorillas don't.
A zookeeper recorded this
at the Riverbanks Zoo

in South Carolina.
The animals are apparently
under an awning,

but where they really want
to be is under their roof.

After one of them
makes the trip,

it's not long before
the others follow suit.

For the primates
in that climate,

it's high time it got more dry.
It makes them sigh if there's
a giant storm so violent.

They revile it.
Wonder why it won't be quiet?
They could riot.
They won't buy it.
So to tie it up, just dry it
up and give the ape a break.

When the weather becomes
wetter and you don't want

helter-skelter, get a lean-to,
get a tin roof, or Gorilla Glue

a shelter.
I'm Carl Azuz, and that's CNN.
