Iran kaprer Mærsk skib

Saudi-owned Al Arabiya television said an Iranian “force” seized a cargo ship after opening fire on it in the Gulf on Tuesday and directed it to the Iranian port of Bandar Abbas.

A Pentagon spokesman said Iranian forces had boarded a Marshall Island-flagged vessel, the MV Maersk Tigris, in the Gulf. He said the boarding occurred after Iranian patrol boats fired shots across the vessel’s bow and ordered it deeper into Iranian waters.

The ship had no US citizens aboard, the spokesman said, contradicting Al-Arabiya’s report which said there were 34 US sailors on board. He said it was travelling through the Strait of Hormuz when the incident occurred.
