In Photos: US-Iran tensions

Slide 1 of 64: A stern view of the Grace 1 super tanker in the British territory of Gibraltar, on Aug. 15, seized last month in a British Royal Navy operation off Gibraltar.  The United States moved on Thursday to halt the release of the Iranian supertanker Grace 1, detained in Gibraltar for breaching EU sanctions on oil shipments to Syria, thwarting efforts by authorities in London and the British overseas territory to defuse tensions with Tehran.
