Iran Guards seize British-flagged tanker in Strait of Hormuz
Iran's Revolutionary Guards said Friday they had seized a British-flagged tanker in the Strait of Hormuz for breaking 'international maritime rules' as tensions mount in the highly sensitive waterway. Britain however said Iran had seized two ships in the Gulf, with Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt warning of 'serious consequences' if the issue was not resolved quickly. The latest incident came as President Donald Trump insisted Friday that the US military had downed an Iranian drone that was threatening an American naval vessel in the Strait of Hormuz, despite denials from Tehran.

European powers urge Iran to release British-flagged tanker
European powers urged Iran on Saturday to release a British-flagged tanker it seized in the Strait of Hormuz in what Britain called a 'dangerous' move, warning its ships to avoid the strategic waterway. The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps said it seized the Stena Impero Friday for breaking 'international maritime rules' in the strait, a chokepoint for around a third of the world's sea-borne oil. The tanker was impounded off Bandar Abbas port for allegedly failing to respond to distress calls and turning off its transponder after colliding with a fishing vessel, authorities said.

Britain urges Iran to free seized tanker

Tehran was defiantly ignoring mounting European appeals to free the captured oil tanker and its mostly Indian crew, as the United States prepared to redeploy troops to Iran's regional arch-rival Saudi Arabia. Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) said it seized the Stena Impero ship on Friday for breaking 'international maritime rules' in the Strait of Hormuz, a Gulf choke point for about a third of the world's sea-borne oil.
