Iran navy saves tanker

The Iranian navy has foiled a pirate attack on a tanker in the Red Sea.

Lieutenant commander of operations Admiral Siyavash Jarreh said on Sunday that warships from the 30th fleet rescued the Indian vessel from seven boats, according to the FNA news agency.

He named the ship as Jok Jok, but no such vessel exists in maritime databases.

Jarreh said the tanker was not damaged in the attack and it safely headed towards its destination.
