The Pentagon says Iranian naval craft harassed three U.S. Navy ships in the Strait of Hormuz in a "provocative" action on Sunday morning. The U.S. Navy 5th Fleet said the American ships had to take evasive action and were on the verge of firing at the Iranian craft when it turned away. The Iranian Foreign Ministry described the incident as "something normal" and was resolved.
