Iranian vessels headed for Venezuela seized by US officials

Washington, Aug 14 (UNI) The Trump administration seized the cargo of four tankers that were transporting Iranian fuel to Venezuela, officials said on Friday, as the US steps up its campaign against the two heavily sanctioned countries.
US officials said that military force was not used in the seizures and that the ships weren't physically confiscated. Rather, US officials threatened ship owners, insurers and captains with sanction to force them to hand over their cargo, which have now become US property, Al Jazeera reported.
US officials alleged that the four ships which were transporting 1.1 million barrels of gasoline to Venezuela never arrived at the South American country and went missing. Two of the ships later reappeared near Cape Verde.
