Is this it....?

Iran envoy repeats US abuse claim



An Iranian diplomat kidnapped in Iraq has appeared before journalists in Tehran, saying that a US official was present while his captors tortured him.

Jalal Sharafi was brought to the news conference in a wheelchair flanked by nurses, a week after his release.

The second secretary at Iran's Baghdad embassy gave a detailed account of beatings and interrogations, including being whipped on his feet with cables.

The US has denied any involvement in Mr Sharafi's abduction.

He was released last Tuesday, a day before the Iranian government set free 15 British naval personnel it accused of illegally entering its waters, but no link has been confirmed between the two cases.

He was abducted in February and held for 57 days.

24.4.2007 - 33 days since the erm "incident" our very capable Defence Secretary Des Browne announces . . .

Navy resumes Gulf ship missions

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/6587619.stm

The Royal Navy is to resume boarding operations in the northern Gulf for the first time since the capture of its personnel by Iran.

The missions were suspended after 15 UK sailors and marines were detained by Iranian forces in March.

Meanwhile, former BBC news and current affairs chief Tony Hall will lead the inquiry into the MoD's decision to let the captives sell their stories.

Defence Secretary Des Browne made both announcements in written statements.

The 15 British service personnel were searching a cargo boat in the Gulf when they were captured over a boundary dispute.

Mr Browne said in a Commons statement: "Pending the results of the inquiries set up to identify any lessons we can learn from this incident, we have taken measures, in line with the findings of the initial reviews of procedures, to ensure the risk to boarding operations is minimised.

"This will involve an incremental return to full boarding operations in all areas."

is it me or has there been very little press of the 23 South Korean hostages in Afghanistan? Sending out a great message to our so called allies?

Quote:
Newly released Ministry of Defence documents state that:

— The arrests took place in waters that are not internationally agreed as Iraqi;

— The coalition unilaterally designated a dividing line between Iraqi and Iranian waters in the Gulf without telling Iran where it was;

— The Iranian Revolutionary Guards’ coastal protection vessels were crossing this invisible line at a rate of three times a week; It was the British who apparently raised their weapons first before the Iranian gunboats came alongside;

— The cornered British, surrounded by heavily armed Iranians, made a hopeless last-minute radio plea for a helicopter to come back and provide air cover.

Iran always claimed that it had arrested the Britons for violating its territorial integrity.

Des Browne, the Defence Secretary, repeatedly told the Commons that the personnel were seized in Iraqi waters.

Am I just being a cynic or is the fact that they were arrested while the PM was in Washington DC not at all relevant. I leave this for others to judge!
