    A South Korean-flagged tanker has been seized by Iran, Iranian media said on Monday.

    Iranian media said the vessel had been seized by the country’s elite Revolutionary Guards navy “for polluting the Gulf with chemicals”.

    The crew of the South Korean-flagged vessel has been detained in the Iranian port city of Bandar Abbas, the semi-official news agency Tasnim, also reported on Monday.

    The crew members are from South Korea, Indonesia, Vietnam and Myanmar, Tasnim said, without specifying the number of detained crew members or where they were being held.

    The United Kingdom Maritime Trade Operations (UKMTO) naval authority earlier said on its website that an “interaction” between Iranian authorities and a merchant vessel in the Strait of Hormuz led the ship to alter its course and proceed into Iranian waters.

    Another ship seized by the mad dictators of the gulf.
