Iran seizes foreign oil tanker in Gulf of Oman, bound for US
Iran has seized a foreign oil tanker, the Marshall Islands-flagged Advantage Sweet, in the Gulf of Oman after leaving Kuwait on its way to Houston. The US Navy's 5th Fleet called for its immediate release, stating that Iran's actions are contrary to international law and disruptive to regional security and stability. US Naval Forces Central Command attributed the vessel's seizure to the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps Navy, which is not limited to land, air, or even international waters in Tehran's threat to international shipping. The incident is the latest in a series of conflicts regarding Iran's nuclear program.

ASSOCIATED PRESS — Pence testifies before election probe grand jury: AP source
Former Vice President Mike Pence testified before a federal grand jury investigating efforts by former President Donald Trump and his allies to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election. This appearance before a grand jury in Washington could provide first-hand information about conversations and events leading up to the January 6th, 2021, insurrection at the U.S. Capitol. Pence was subpoenaed earlier this year, but Trump's lawyers objected, citing executive privilege concerns. However, a judge in March refused to block Pence's appearance, though he did side with Pence's constitutional claims that he could not be forced to answer questions about anything related to his role as presiding over the Senate's certification of votes on January 6th. The investigation is ongoing, and it is not clear when it will end or if anyone will be charged.
