Jeremy Hunt 'extremely concerned' as Iran seizes British oil tankers
Jeremy Hunt has said he is "extremely concerned" by the "unacceptable" seizure of oil tankers by Iranian authorities in the Persian Gulf, as it emerged one of the ships had been released. The Foreign Secretary confirmed that he will attend a meeting of the Government's emergency committee Cobra on Friday night amid the escalation of tensions. The Stena Impero, which is registered in the UK, was seized by the Iranian Revolutionary Guard in the Strait of Hormuz for "violating international maritime rules", according to the semi-official Fars news agency.
