London summons Iran's charge d'affaires over tanker seizure

The Foreign Office in London summoned Iran's charge d'affaires on Saturday, the ministry said, following the seizure of a British-flagged tanker in the Gulf.

The diplomat was called in as European powers urged Iran to release the Stena Impero it seized in the Strait of Hormuz in what Britain earlier called a "dangerous" move.
