Iranian officials say all 23 crew members aboard the British-flagged tanker seized by Iran's Revolutionary Guards are safe, adding the vessel was captured because it had "risked maritime safety." Britain has denounced the move as a "hostile act," rejecting Tehran's explanation that it seized the vessel because it had been involved in an accident. The seizure comes two weeks after British royal marines in Gibraltar captured an Iranian tanker accused of shipping oil to Syria in violation of an EU embargo.
