Iranian gunboats seized a Kuwaiti cargo ship as it sailed into the Straits of Hormuz and removed the crew to an unidentified Iranian port, the Kuwaiti news agency KUNA said. Quoting shipping sources in Bahrain, the agency said the 23,000-ton Almoharraq was seized in international waters Thursday. Government and shipping sources in London could not confirm the report.
