Naval forces of Iran's Revolutionary Guards have in recent days seized two Panama-flagged ships smuggling a total of 1.5 million liters of fuel, the semi-official Tasnim news agency reported on Thursday.

The two ships had 37 crew members in all from various countries, and were seized on their way out of Iran, it added.
