UK says Iranian boats tried to intercept British tanker
Thursday, 11 July 2019 Britain has said Iran tried to divert and intercept one of its commercial oil tankers, but was warned off by the Royal Navy. Tehran had warned Britain of "consequences" after one of its vessels was seized.
U.S. officials say five boats belonging to Iran's Revolutionary Guards tried to stop a British oil tanker in the Gulf but withdrew after a British warship warned them. The Guards and Iran's foreign minister have rejected that claim. Ryan Brooks reports.
