Iran oil shipment: Venezuelan military to escort fuel tankers

Venezuela says its military will escort five Iranian tankers, bringing oil to ease severe shortages.

    A new standoff could be brewing between the United States, Iran and Venezuela over a shipment of millions of dollars of fuel.

    Five Iranian oil tankers are just days away from arriving in Venezuela to help ease fuel shortages there.

    Venezuela's own oil refining industry collapsed; critics say that was because of underinvestment and mismanagement.
