Iran to free 7 crew members of detained UK tanker

The Islamic Republic will free seven crew members from the British-flagged tanker Stena Impero, detained by the authorities in the Strait of Hormuz, ONA reports citing Sputnik.

The vessel was seized by the Islamic Revolutionary Guards on 20 July, just two weeks after British Royal Marines detained the Grace 1 tanker carrying Iranian oil near Gibraltar. Tehran states the ship had engaged in dangerous manoeuvres and rammed an Iranian fishing boat.
