Iran oil tanker: Gibraltar orders release of Grace 1
Gibraltar has freed an Iranian oil tanker detained last month on suspicion of sanctions-busting, despite a last-minute plea by the US authorities.
The UK territory received written assurances from Iran that the ship would not discharge its cargo in Syria.
Grace 1, carrying Iranian oil, was stopped by Royal Marines on 4 July, triggering a standoff with Tehran.
Gibraltar's chief justice, Anthony Dudley, said no US application was currently before the court.
