Iranian Revolutionary Guards have seized a foreign ship for allegedly smuggling diesel, a Guards commander said on Saturday.
"A foreign ship, carrying smuggled diesel was seized," Iran's state broadcaster quoted Col. Ahmad Hajian, commander of the Naval Type 412 Zulfaqar in the southern Parsian county, as saying.
"After inspection, more than 150,000 liters of smuggled diesel were discovered," he added.
Hajian said the ship's 11 crew members were detained for interrogation. He did not provide the ship's nationality or details on when it was seized.
