Global tensions continue to mount over Iran's seizure of a British-flagged oil tanker in the Strait of Hormuz, with Britain issuing a stern warning to Tehran and the Islamic Republic maintaining the seizure was a "reciprocal" move.  

Britain's Foreign Office said Saturday it summoned Iran's Charge d'Affaires in London, one day after British Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt said Tehran "may be choosing a dangerous path of illegal and destabilizing behavior" and warned Britain's "reaction will be considered but robust."

Iran's powerful Guardian Council said Saturday the seizure was in response to Britain's participation in the capture two weeks ago of an Iranian oil tanker transporting more than 2 million gallons of Iranian crude oil near the British territory of Gibraltar on Spain's southern coast.
