Iran's ambassador to London has been summoned by British Foreign Office after a tanker - which was detained by Gibraltar authorities but later released over assurances - delivered its oil load to Syrian regime.

USA national security adviser John Bolton on Friday alleged that the tanker, which had set sail after its release flying the Iranian flag and renamed the Adrian Darya, had arrived at the Syrian port of Tartus.
