Seizure of UK flagged oil tanker by Iran: May chairs COBRA meeting on crisis

The seizing of the British tanker marked perhaps the most significant escalation of tensions since May when US announced steps of dispatching an aircraft carrier and additional troops to Middle East, citing some kind of threats posed by Iran.

The row between Iran and Britain escalated after the two countries accused each other of escalating tensions following Iran’s seizure of a British-flagged oil tanker and the detention of Iran’s Grace 1 oil tanker in Gibraltar by Britain on July 4.
