Iran follows its Hostage Crisis playbook, as the West reads out of the Jimmy Carter Hostage Crisis Response Handbook, at least so far. From SkyNews, with thanks to Mackie:
The British sailors and marines being held in Iran are to be paraded on television – but the female sailor who was captured could be released “today or tomorrow.”
Turkish TV has quoted the Iranian foreign minister as saying Faye Turney could be freed within hours.
And an Arabic Iranian broadcaster says it will show footage of the captives on television.
The news comes after Tony Blair said the time had come to “ratchet up the pressure” on Iran.
