Iran seizes oil tanker allegedly smuggling diesel fuel to UAE: ISNA

Iran's Revolutionary Guard seized a ship in the Persian Gulf for allegedly trying to smuggle diesel fuel into the United Arab Emirates, Iran's state-run media reported Monday.

ISNA, a semi-official Iranian news agency, said on Monday: "It was detained near Iran's Greater Tunb island in the Persian Gulf".

An official told the Fars news agency that the ship was smuggling 250,000 liters (66,000 USA gallons) of diesel.

According to an Iranian military official, Brigadier-General Ali Ozmayi, all 11 crew members were arrested. Eleven crew members were on board and all were taken into custody to be referred to prosecutors.

On Sunday, a senior United States official told reporters that evidence from the attack, which hit the world's biggest oil-processing facility on Saturday, indicated Iran was behind it, instead of the Yemeni Houthi group that had claimed responsibility.

In July, Iran seized a British oil tanker near the Strait of Hormuz for alleged marine violations, two weeks after British forces detained an Iranian tanker near Gibraltar and accused it of taking oil to Syria in violation of European Union sanctions.

Maritime traffic through the Straits of Hormuz, a key waterway for oil tankers and other shipping, has been affected by growing tensions between Iran and the U.S. and its main Gulf allies, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.

USA officials suggested launch sites in the northern Gulf, Iran or Iraq were a more likely source of the missiles.

This comes two days after oil infrastructure in Saudi Arabia was attacked by drones, sparking concerns about the world's oil supply and sending prices skyrocketing.

"These allegations are condemned as unacceptable and entirely baseless", Foreign Ministry spokesman Abbas Mousavi said in remarks carried by state TV.
