British Prime Minister Boris Johnson condemns Iran over of a deadly drone attack on an Israeli-managed ship near Oman that has been blamed on the Islamic Republic.
“I think that Iran should face up to the consequences of what they’ve done,” he says. “This was clearly an unacceptable and outrageous attack on commercial shipping… it is absolutely vital that Iran and every other country respects the freedom of navigation around the world.”
A British national and a Romanian citizen were killed in last week’s attack on the “Mercer Street” tanker.
