British oil tanker reportedly seized by Iran (video)


Iran’s Revolutionary Guard says it seized a British tanker Friday in the Strait of Hormuz, claiming it failed to follow international marine regulations.

The IRGC took the British tanker, Stena Impero, to a coastal area and turned it over to maritime authorities, according to Iran State TV.

Reuters reported that a second British-operated tanker had also taken a sharp northerly turn and was heading toward Iran after passing through the Strait of Hormuz into the Gulf. Reuters said the source on the movement of Liberian flagged tanker Mesdar was Refinitiv data.
