UPDATE 7-Iran says it seized tanker after collision, UK calls move a "hostile act"GENEVA/LONDON, July 20 (Reuters) – Britain denounced the Iranian seizure of a British-flagged oil tanker in the Gulf as a “hostile act” on Saturday, rejecting Tehran’s explanation that it had seized the vessel because it had been involved in an accident.
