Blomberg News carried this story.

A female U.K. sailor who was among a group of Britons seized by Iranian forces in the Persian Gulf was shown on Iranian television today.

Faye Turney, 26, wearing a black headscarf and smoking a cigarette, said her group had “obviously trespassed” into Iranian waters before their capture on March 23. The Iranians had been “friendly and hospitable,” she said.

British Officials insist the sailors were in Iraqi waters, and objected to the airing of their naval personnel on television.

Comment: Since the first round of diplomacy has obviously not worked, more intense diplomacy will likely be needed!

  2. More intense diplomacy….yeah, right.

    A couple of strategically-placed cruise missiles with British flags painted on them would be all the “diplomacy” Iran needs.

  3. Well, remember that the Russian embassy was also seized in 79. Their people were out within six hours. Anyone wonder why?
