Iran seize second British tanker in one day

UK Defense Journal – The MV Mesdar, originally bound for Saudi Arabia, has been seized by Iran.

The vessel, like the earlier seized Stena Impero, was observed on maritime tracking services making a sudden turn and heading towards Iran.

The vessel is Liberian-flagged but British owned and is the second tanker seized by Iran today.

The British Government’s emergency committee, COBRA, is meeting to discuss both incidents.
