by Costas Pitas

Gibraltar police said on Friday they had arrested the two second mates from the Iranian Grace 1 tanker which was detained last week on suspicion it was breaking European sanctions by taking oil to Syria.

On Thursday, the captain and chief officer of the vessel were arrested.

"All four men are Indian nationals and they have been granted full legal assistance," Gibraltar police said in a statement.
