Merchant vessel enters Iranian waters after interaction – UKMTO

The United Kingdom Maritime Trade Operations (UKMTO) naval authority said on Monday an “interaction” between Iranian authorities and a merchant vessel in the Strait of Hormuz led the ship to alter its course and proceed into Iranian waters.

The UKMTO website gave no further details. Saudi-owned Al Arabiya TV cited unnamed sources as saying a South Korean-flagged tanker carrying chemicals had been seized by Iran.
