The global shipping news and tracking site Trade Winds reports that a Hong Kong-flagged tanker has been boarded by armed men in the Strait of Hormuz, and subsequently taken into Iranian waters.

Details are sketchy at this point, but Reuters has also confirmed an event is unfolding, saying based on an urgent alert issued by maritime security firm Dryad Global that the vessel SC Taipei had been at anchor waiting to approach Jubail in Saudi Arabia, but that the tanker was “highly likely to be the vessel of concern”, but added that it was “unclear whether the vessel is in distress or is being assisted by Iran in some way”.

Reuters said additionally:

“The vessel is now reported to be at anchor approx. 3nm (nautical miles) off Ras Al Kuh, in vicinity of 25-48N 057-14E,” the emailed advisory notice said.
