Britain may release tanker if Iran ‘guarantees’ oil isn’t going to Syria

July 13 (UPI) -- The British foreign secretary said the Iranian tanker detailed near Gibraltar could be released in exchange for a guarantee that the oil would not be taken to Syria.

The Organization of American States is urging Nicaragua to release all imprisoned government opponents, cancel the legal cases against them and restore fundamental rights. The OAS said in a Thursday statement that it applauds "the release of political prisoners," hundreds of whom have been already transferred to house arrest.

According to the Nicaraguan opposition, at least 200 of them have outstanding arrest warrants. The government says it has released all prisoners from a list agreed upon during a 90-day window that ended this week. But the opposition says at least 84 people arrested after the initial agreem...
