U.S. Navy ship changes course after Iran vessel interaction: U.S. official
The official, speaking on the condition of anonymity, said the IRGCN boats came within 600 yards of the USNS Invincible, a tracking ship, and stopped. The Invincible was being accompanied by three ships from British Royal Navy and forced the formation to change course.
The official said attempts were made to communicate over radio, but there was no response and the interaction was "unsafe and unprofessional."
