TEHRAN – Iranian naval guards have seized four Indian fishing vessels for trespassing on the country's territorial waters in the Arvand waterway on the mouth of the Persian Gulf. 

Colonel Mohammad-Ali Mousivand, commander of the Abadan Navy Base, said the vessels had been seized on Saturday morning during a patrol by his forces, Press TV reported on Sunday.

The vessels had 16 crew members who were arrested as “border intruders,” he added.

Mousivand said all those detained will be freed after Iran’s Foreign Ministry takes measures to resolve their problem.
