British Sailors Seized by Iranian Forces in Persian Gulf

Hosted by

In disputed waters of the Persian Gulf today, 15 British sailors boarded a vessel suspected of smuggling cars. They were then seized by Iranian forces. Although Britain insists they were on the Iraqi--not the Iranian--side and is demanding their immediate and safe return, it appears they are still being held.  We hear more about the troubling incident from Julian Borger, diplomatic correspondent for the Guardian, and Borzou Daragahi, Middle East correspondent for the Los Angeles Times.
