The US Justice Department has issued a warrant to seize a detained Iranian oil tanker; a day after a judge in Gibraltar ordered it to be released.

The Grace 1 super-tanker, which is carrying 2.1 million barrels of oil, was detained on 4th of July, on suspicion of illegally transporting oil to Syria.

A last-minute legal attempt by the US to keep the tanker detained was rejected by Gibraltar on Thursday.

Iran previously called the detention of Grace 1 an "illegal interception".
