An Iranian oil tanker seized by British authorities in Gibraltar last month was released Sunday. The ship was released after Gibraltar rejected a U.S. request to keep detaining the ship, which it says is in breach of U.S. sanctions because it is operated by Iran’s Revolutionary Guard. Gibraltar said the sanctions, however, do not apply in the EU. Iran warned the U.S. against seizing the tanker as it departed from Gibraltar.
