Iran, for the second time a couple of years, has grabbed some UK sailors as set out here:
Fifteen British Navy personnel have been captured at gunpoint by Iranian forces, the Ministry of Defence says.Counterterrorism Blog has questions.
The men were seized at 1030 local time when they boarded a boat in the Gulf, off the coast of Iraq, which they suspected was smuggling cars.
The Royal Navy said the men who were on a routine patrol in Iraqi waters, were understood to be unharmed.
Everyone on the non-Iranian side seems pretty sure the Brits were in Iraqi waters. I wonder why the Iranian forces were allowed into those waters to make the grab?
UPDATE: THe Counterterrrorism Blog sees wheels within wheels.
