The Iranian organ Farsnews claims that Iran has seized a U.S. ship. Thirty-four are on board, the outlet claims. Fars claims: The Iranian Navy has confiscated the American trade vessel with all its 34 crew for trespassing on Iran's territorial waters in the Persian Gulf. An Iranian warship is now taking the American vessel to Iran's Southern port city of Bandar Abbas in the Persian Gulf. There has been no official confirmation of the seizure yet. Al Arabiya is reporting that U.S. has been fired on by the Iranians: Iran has fired at a U.S. cargo ship and has directed it to Bandar Abbas port on the southern coast of Iran, Al Arabiya News Channel has reported on Tuesday. Up to 34 American sailors are believed to be onboard the ship, Al Arabiya reported. CNBC reports the U.S. Navy says the claims are false: Senior U.S. Navy officials told NBC News there had not been any confrontation between Iran's Revolutionary Guard and any Navy ships, however.
