Iran detains and releases Algerian tanker

Local media in Algeria reported on Saturday that Iran detained and released on Friday a tanker called Mesdar, owned by Algerian government-owned company Sonatrach, as it was crossing the Strait of Hormuz.

According to the reports, Iran's forces first forced the vessel to change course towards Iran’s territorial waters,

The Algerian tanker should not be confused with the British-operated ship of the same name that was stopped by Iranian forces on the same day, before being let go.
