TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — A new video released by Iran's Revolutionary Guard shows a British warship escorting a U.K.-flagged tanker being warned by the paramilitary troops not to interfere in their seizure of the commercial vessel earlier this month.

The nearly two-minute video shows the British warship Foxtrot 236 during the escort and subsequent seizure of the Stena Impero by the Revolutionary Guard on July 19 in the Strait of Hormuz, the critical shipping waterway between Iran and Oman.

In the video, an Iranian officer is heard telling the British warship: "You are ordered to not interfere in my operation."

A British officer is heard telling the Iranian officer that the British warship is in international waters with the merchant vessel conducting transit passage.

The Iranian officer responds: "Don't put your life in danger."
