Iran to release seized Maersk vessel after it pays fine

Iran says a Marshal Islands-flagged cargo vessel seized by Iranian forces in the Strait of Hormuz will be released within two days, after it pays a fine. Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Marzieh Afkham told reporters Wednesday says the April 28 seizure of MV Maersk Tigris followed a legal complaint by an Iranian private company. Afkham says that, “based on the information we have acquired, it is likely that the dispute will be settled within next two days.”
