What Is The Law on Sea Interceptions?

According to the San Remo Manual, it is permissible under rule 67(a) to attack neutral vessels on the high seas when the vessels

“are believed on reasonable grounds to be carrying contraband or breaching a blockade, and after prior warning they intentionally and clearly refuse to stop, or intentionally and clearly resist visit, search or capture.”
