UK Ambassador to Iran, Nicholas Hopton, has been summoned to the foreign ministry for the third time, amid the ongoing tensions between London and Tehran over the seizure of an Iranian oil tanker off Gibraltar last week.

British Royal Marines seized the Iranian oil tanker in Gibraltar on Thursday for trying to take oil to Syria in violation of EU sanctions, and Iran responded by threatening possible retaliations, saying Britain should be "scared."
