Iranians Capture UK Sailors...Again

BBC NEWS - Fifteen British Navy personnel have been captured at gunpoint by Iranian forces, the Ministry of Defence says.

The men were seized when they boarded a boat in the north Arabian Gulf, off the coast of Iraq, which they suspected was smuggling cars.

The Royal Navy said it was doing everything it could to secure their release and they were understood to be safe and well.

They were said to be carrying out a routine patrol.
