An Iranian supertanker with $130 million worth of light crude oil that the US suspects is tied to a sanctioned organization has left Gibraltar and is heading east into the Mediterranean Sea, with its next destination reported to be Greece. Ship tracking service MarineTraffic said on Monday that the Iran-flagged Adrian Darya 1, previously named Grace 1, has set course for Kalamata, Greece, with an estimated arrival on August 25. It wasn’t immediately clear why the tanker would be heading there or whether the destination could change. The vessel left Gibraltar late on Sunday after having been detained for a month in the British overseas territory for allegedly attempting to breach European Union sanctions on Syria. Gibraltar authorities rejected attempts by the US to seize the oil tanker. [AP]
