Gibraltar police say they’ve arrested the captain and chief officer of the Iranian supertanker that was seized by British marines last week.

It was stopped in waters just off the UK overseas territory on suspicion of breaking EU sanctions by taking oil to Syria.

Documents and electronic devices have also been removed from the ship.

Al Jazeera’s Rory Challands reports from London.
