The Pentagon on Tuesday said Iran's interception of a Marshall Islands-flagged cargo vessel appeared to be a "provocative" act, but U.S. officials did not have all the facts surrounding the incident. Colonel Steve Warren, a Pentagon spokesman, said the decision by Iranian naval forces to fire warning shots over the bow of the ship was "inappropriate." He said a U.S. Navy destroyer was headed in that direction to monitor the situation. "At first appearance it does seem to be provocative behavior, but again we don't have all the facts yet," Warren told a Pentagon news briefing.

By Lawrence Hurley WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Supreme Court on Tuesday appeared closely divided on whether it should legalize gay marriage across the United States. Justice Anthony Kennedy, the likely swing vote on the nine-justice court, asked tough questions of both sides, giving little indication of how he will vote, although he has a history of backing gay rights.

Gay marriage supporters hold a gay rights flag in front of the U.S. Supreme Court before a hearing about gay marriageBy Lawrence Hurley WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Supreme Court heard arguments on Tuesday on whether the Constitution provides same-sex couples the right to marry, with a majority of the nine justices firing skeptical questions at a lawyer asking them to legalize gay marriage nationwide. Five justices including a possible swing vote, Justice Anthony Kennedy, and a member of the court's liberal wing, Justice Stephen Breyer, asked lawyer Mary Bonauto why the high court should change a definition of marriage that has existed for millennia, rather than allowing American voters to decide. The oral arguments, scheduled for 2-1/2 hours, continued and were expected to end about 12:30 p.m.. A lively crowd estimated at more than 1,000 people, with those favoring legalized gay marriage outnumbering those opposed, gathered outside the white marble courthouse as the justices heard arguments in the case, known as Obergefell v. Hodges.
