The Latest: UK rejects Iranian position on tanker seizure

Jul 20, 2019

TEHRAN, Iran — The Latest on developments related to tensions between the U.S. and Iran (all times local): 9:20 p.m. Britain's foreign secretary says he rejects Iran's attempt to link its seizure of a British-flagged tanker to a July 4 incident in which British marines helped take control of an Iranian tanker off Gibraltar.

In contrast, he says, Iran had no legal justification for...

Iran says British tanker seized because of collision

Jul 20, 2019

TEHRAN, Iran — Iran's seizure of a British-flagged oil tanker was allegedly due to a collision with an Iranian fishing boat, the country's state-run IRNA news agency said Saturday. The British tanker reportedly caused damage to the fishing boat, then didn't respond to calls from the smaller craft. The fishing boat informed Iran's Ports and Maritime Organization, which notified the Revolutionary Guard. IRNA reported that the Revolutionary Guard vessels directed the Stena Impero to an Iranian port for an investigation Friday, and that the crew remained on board the ship as per safety regulations. Iran's attempt to offer a "technical"...

Technology, temporary help keeps farmers on job longer

ALEXANDRIA, Ind. — Assistive technology, help from seasonal hires and family members, and a general improvement in the health of U.S. seniors in recent decades have helped farmers remain productive and stay on the job well into their 60s, 70s and beyond. In the U.S. last year, the median age for domestic farmers, ranchers and other agricultural managers was 56.4 years old. That's the highest median age of any major occupation tracked by the government's Current Population Survey for which data was available. Experts worry that without the older farmers, there might not be enough people interested in agriculture to...

Japan vows action if S. Korea hurts companies in trade row

Jul 20, 2019

TOKYO — Japan's foreign minister said Tokyo will take "necessary measures" against South Korea if interests of Japanese companies are harmed in an escalating dispute over World War II forced labor. The neighboring countries and U.S. allies are quarreling over South Korean court decisions ordering Japanese companies to compensate victims of forced labor during Japan's 1910-1945 colonial rule of the Korean Peninsula. Foreign Minister Taro Kono said Friday after summoning South Korean Ambassador Nam Gwan-pyo that Tokyo is prepared to take "necessary measures" to protect the interest of Japanese companies, without giving details. Their talks were held in an icy...

Jul 20, 2019

NEW YORK — About a third of New York City's subway lines were suspended for more than an hour during a hot Friday evening commute, stranding some passengers underground and sending others searching for alternate ways home.
