Three Iranian vessels tried to block a BP-operated tanker passing through the Strait of Hormuz but backed off when confronted by a Royal Navy warship, the UK government said on Thursday.
The vessel was impounded with its 23 crew members aboard at the port of Bandar Abbas after the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps seized it in the Strait of Hormuz on Friday.
Britain on Saturday denounced Iran's seizure of a British-flagged oil tanker in the Gulf as a "hostile act" and rejected Tehran's explanation that it seized the vessel because it had been involved in an accident.
The infrastructure of the emirate has capacity to accommodate more than 150,000 cases from contacts and infected, the Department emphasized.
The operations room of Dubai Police on Friday was alerted about a man who sustained injuries in the pelvis and a fracture in the leg, after he had an accident with his motorcycle in the "Margham" desert. It was reported he was unable to move.
The Ministry expressed its sincere condolences to the family of the deceased and wished current COVID-19 patients a speedy and full recovery.
