Freed Sailors Arrive in London amid Many Questions

Hosted by

After a week and a half of what looked like comfortable captivity in Iran, fifteen British marines and sailors are back with their families as the rest of the world looks at the aftermath of a potentially dangerous episode. Iran and the European Union already have resumed discussions on Iran's nuclear program, so communications channels are still open. What about Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Tony Blair? Was the prisoner release a "gift" from Iran or dramatic damage control?  Despite Britain’s denials, was there a deal? We’ll hear how perceptions differ from the Middle East to the Western World.
