Saudi Arabia says it forces three Iranian boats out of its waters

CAIRO, June 27 (Reuters) - Saudi Arabia forced three Iranian boats to retreat from its waters on Thursday after firing warning shots, a spokesman for Saudi boarder guards said on Saturday.

The spokesman, quoted by Saudi news agency SPA, said the Iranian vessels refused to stop after they entered Saudi waters despite repeated warnings, which forced the Saudi authorities to fire the warning shots. (Reporting by Hesham Abdul Khalek Editing by Peter Graff)
