Iran’s Tasnim News Agency has uploaded a video of the detained UK oil tanker Stena Impero. The footage shows the vessel anchored out at open sea.

Earlier, Fars News Agency reported that all 23 crew members on the detained tanker were now at the port of Bandar Abbas and will remain aboard the vessel until the end of the investigation.

Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps arrested a UK-flagged tanker, the Stena Impero, on Friday amid an accident involving the vessel and a fishing boat.

Separately, a Liberian-flagged ship, the Mesdar, was also detained by the IRGS but was later released.

The seizure of the UK vessel was met with indignation by several top political figures, with UK Foreign Secretary Hunt calling the incident ‘unacceptable’.

The incident comes amid the intensified tensions between London and Tehran after Iranian supertanker Grace 1 was detained off the coast of Gibraltar earlier this month.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
