  • All 23 crew of seized British-operated tanker are safe

Meanwhile in an audio recording released by a maritime security risk firm, a British naval officer can be heard warning the transit of a British-flagged vessel through the Strait of Hormuz must not be impaired under worldwide law, just before it is seized by Iranian military forces.

Stena Bulk, the vessel's Sweden-based owners, said on Saturday they were preparing a formal request to visit the crew, who are from India, Latvia, the Philippines and Russian Federation.

Another person from Thrippunithura, Kochi, could also be among the crew members.

While the British Government discusses its next move - Iran holds the tankers 23-member crew and an Iranian flag flies over its bow. Last week, armed Iranian boats reportedly tried to block another British oil tanker in the Persian Gulf, CNN reports. "Iran is taking care of the ecology in the Strait of Hormuz", he noted. It will remain there with its crew - 18 of them Indians - while the accident is investigated, Iranian news agencies quoted Afifipour as saying.

The seizure occurred after the British navy seized Iran's Grace 1 tanker in Gibraltar on July 4 on suspicion of smuggling oil to Syria in breach of European Union sanctions.

Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt has urged Iran to reverse the "illegal" seizure. Iran claimed that there were 18 Indians among the 23 people on board the oil tanker.
