Pictured: Moment Iranian warship aggressively cuts across the bows of U.S. Navy ships in international waters of the Persian Gulf as tensions grow

An Iranian warship repeatedly crossed the bows of U.S. military vessels in international waters in an 'unsafe and unprofessional interaction,' the U.S. Navy said on Tuesday.

The tense encounter in the Persian Gulf on April 2 was the first such incident in about a year amid wider turmoil in the region over Tehran's tattered nuclear deal.

Images released by the Navy showed a ship commanded by Iran's paramilitary Revolutionary Guard cut in front of the USCGC Monomoy, causing the Coast Guard vessel to come to an abrupt stop with its engine smoking on April 2.
