Iran's detention of UK-flagged tanker unacceptable: owner

Iran's detention of UK-flagged tanker unacceptable: ownerThe continued detention of British-flagged tanker Stena Impero is “unacceptable and unjustifiable” and there are concerns for the welfare of the crew after 19 days in confinement, the vessel’s owner said on Tuesday. Iran’s Revolutionary Guards on July 19 seized the Stena Impero in the Strait of Hormuz waterway for alleged marine violations. The saga has exacerbated frictions between Tehran and the West since the United States pulled out of an international agreement curbing Iran’s nuclear program and reimposed economic sanctions.
