The Saudi navy has captured three members of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards from a boat seized last week as the vessel approached Saudi Arabia’s offshore Marjan oilfield,Riyadh has said.

Relations between the two countries are at their worst in years, supporting opposite sides in conflicts in Syria, Yemen and Iraq, and each accusing the other of destabilising regional security.

“This was one of three vessels which were intercepted by Saudi forces. It was captured with the three men on board, the other two escaped,” the Saudi information ministry said in a statement on Monday.

“The three captured members of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards are now being questioned by Saudi authorities,” it said, citing a Saudi official.

The vessel, which was seized last Friday, was carrying explosives and the those captured intended to conduct a “terrorist act” in Saudi territorial waters, it claimed.

An earlier report from the Saudi Press Agency said the Saudi navy had fired warning shots at the two boats that managed to escape.
