(FOX NEWS) – Fox News has learned that a second Liberian tanker operated by a British company was also seized by the Iranian Revolutionary Guard and was seen on maritime tracking services making a turn, headed towards Iran.
President Trump said Friday that Iran is “nothing but trouble” and that “we heard one, we heard two,” tankers were seized.
Iran seized a British-flagged oil tanker in the Strait of Hormuz earlier Friday amid growing tensions in the region.
The Stena Impero, which has a crew of 23 onboard, “was approached by unidentified small crafts and a helicopter during transit of the Strait of Hormuz while the vessel was in international waters,” Stena Bulk, the shipping company that owns the vessel, said in a statement. “We are presently unable to contact the vessel which is now heading north towards Iran.”
