Act of war. “Five British sailors taken hostage in Iran,” from the Daily Mail, November 30 (thanks to Kris):
Five British sailors are being held hostage in Iran.
The Foreign Office confirmed that a racing yacht owned by Sail Bahrain and crewed by five British sailors was detained by the Iranian Navy on November 25.
The yacht had been on its way to Dubai and, according to the Foreign Office, may have ‘inadvertently’, strayed into Iranian waters.
If confirmed, the detention of the British sailors will dramatically increase tensions between Iran and the West….
No kidding, really?
