3. Here's a link to the actual story...sounds like UK commandos got caught...
...trying to infiltrate Iran's coastline:

<http://news.ft.com/servlet/ContentServer?pagename=FT.co... >

"The British government was trying to prevent the escalation of a diplomatic row with Tehran last night over the seizure of three small Royal Navy vessels inside Iranian territorial waters.

'We are hoping that this is a low-level incident which will not turn into something bigger,' a Foreign Office spokesman said last night.

He was speaking after it emerged that Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) had seized three British patrol craft yesterday and arrested eight Royal Navy personnel on the Shatt al-Arab waterway that divides Iran from Iraq, after they had apparently strayed into Iranian waters."
