 IRGC hijacked foreign fuel tanker

The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps seized a foreign tanker in the Persian Gulf, which was trying to transport 11 million liters of fuel. It is reported by Reuters with reference to the Iranian media. The captain and crew of the tanker have been detained as part of an investigation into a smuggling attempt. Fuel prices in Iran are among the cheapest in the world due to extensive subsidies, as well as a sharp drop in the value of the national currency.
