15 British Soldiers Seized In Iranian Waters

By: Mir M.Hosseini

Iranian naval forces seized British sailors and marines who were reportedly in Iran waters. Iran's Revolutionary Guard naval corps, which operates separately from Iran's navy, was involved in this operation. After heavy diplomatic traffic and media coverage, on April, 4th, the Britons were released after 15 days, wearing suits, rather than the military uniform they wore before. The one female crew member, Faye Turney, had a headscarf. An hour after their release, 4 British soldiers were killed in Iraq by a roadside bomb attack. The British had previously claimed that they were in Iraqi waters until adequate proof by Iranian authorities was presented to show otherwise. In several TV interviews, the soldiers admitted being in Iranian waters. 150 years ago, the Anglo-Persian war resulted in Herat to be separated from Iran.
