Breaking News image

Iran says it seized a “foreign tanker” and its 12 crew on Sunday for smuggling fuel in the Gulf.

State television quoted Iran’s Revolutionary Guards as saying the ship had been smuggling one million litres (220,000 gallons) of fuel.

It is not yet confirmed if it is the same as the UAE-based tanker that stopped transmitting its position as it sailed in the Gulf on Sunday.

Iran said it had towed that tanker to a port after it broke down.
