Friday, 12 July 2019 () *Tehran:* Iran's Revolutionary Guards denied on Thursday that they had impeded a British oil tanker in the Strait of Hormuz, the force's Sepah news agency said. "There has been no confrontation in the last 24 hours with any foreign vessels, including British ones," the Revolutionary Guards said in a statement.
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.
