The United States on Thursday demanded Iran immediately release a vessel it seized in the Gulf as a US military commander said Washington would work "aggressively" to ensure free passage of vessels through the vital waterway.

Responding to an announcement by Iran's Revolutionary Guard that it captured a foreign tanker smuggling fuel, the US State Department insisted Iran must free the ship and its crew and stop harassing vessels in and around the Strait of Hormuz.

President Donald Trump says a US ship "destroyed" an Iranian drone.
He said the drone came within 1,000 yards of the USS Boxer and ignored "multiple calls to stand down." If accurate destroyed at 1,000 yards tells us lethal range of US electronic warfare that brought it down. https://t.co/oOf3yeSvbl
