Data from ship-tracking service MarineTraffic showed that the Iran-flagged Adrian Darya 1, the new name for the captured Grace 1 oil tanker, set sail shortly before midnight on Sunday towards international waters, according to media reports.

Gibraltar on Thursday released the tanker and later turned down the United States request to retain it.

The oil taker was detained in July off the coast of the British Overseas Territory of Gibraltar by Royal Marines on suspicion of attempting to carry oil to Syria “in breach of EU sanctions” — charges denied by the Iranian government.(NAN)
