UK warship to escort British ships through Strait of Hormuz

After Iran seized a British oil tanker in the Strait of Hormuz, UK is offering British-flagged ships traveling through the Strait of Hormuz a Royal Navy escort. The Department for Transport said on Thursday that if ships give advance notice of their plans they will be escorted by frigate HMS Montrose. The escort is not compulsory, and Canada is unwilling to support.
