URGENT: US Ship Seized by Iranian Warships

TEHRAN (FNA)- A US cargo ship with 34 crew was stopped and seized by Iranian Navy warships on Tuesday. The Iranian Navy has confiscated the American trade vessel with all its 34 crew, reports said. Other reports said the vessel has been seized for trespassing on Iran's territorial waters in the Persian Gulf. Al-Arabia said an Iranian warship is now taking the American vessel to Iran's Southern port city of Bandar Abbas in the Persian Gulf. Iranian officials have not confirmed the development yet, but a Pentagon spokesman said a Marshall Islands-flagged ship had been boarded by the Iranian navy. Yet, another American official told Reuters there were "no indications so far" of any US ship being directed into an Iranian port. The Al-Arabia report said the Iranian warship has opened warning shots.



Going to be interesting to see how this one plays out.

Hmmm, haven't seen anything about this scanning the news this morning... DOD and several other sites. Until then it's just more propaganda. I would like to think that a US Navy Carrier Group would protect all US Flagged vessels in those lanes. I don't think the Iranian Navy could pull this off...
