Iran impounds tanker with small load of fuel

Iranian media reported on Sunday that patrol boats of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps seized on July 31 a foreign ship carrying 4,400 barrels of fuel.

Press TV quoted Ramezan Zirahi, a commander in the army branch's navy, as saying the vessel was smuggling it to "some Arab states." It was confiscated in the Persian Gulf. The seven members of the crew, who are of "different nationalities," were apprehended.

Iran was struck by more sanctions after tensions with the United States and the United Kingdom rose. Incidents included apparent sabotage and capture of tankers.
