Iran's Revolutionary Guards deny trying to stop British tanker in Gulf - Fars news

GENEVA (Reuters) - Iran’s Revolutionary Guards rejected on Thursday a U.S. claim that they tried to stop a British tanker in the Gulf a day earlier, the semi-official Fars news agency reported.

Five boats believed to belong to the Guards approached a British oil tanker in the Gulf on Wednesday and asked it to stop in Iranian waters close by but withdrew after a British warship warned them, U.S. officials said.
