Britain might free oil tanker soon, IRNA says

Iran said on Tuesday that Britain might free its oil tanker Grace 1 soon in a maritime saga that has exacerbated frictions between Teheran and the West. But a source for Gibraltar, where marines seized the tanker on July 4 on suspicion of violating European sanctions by taking oil to Syria, denied an Iranian report that it could happen on Tuesday. Teheran has denied its vessel was doing anything improper.
