Iranian state television has broadcast video images of two of the 15 British naval personnel captured on March 23rd. Standing in front of a map of the Gulf, the Royal Marine officers are heard confirming that they entered Iranian waters: “We were seized apparently at this point here, on the map, from the GPS stationers which is inside the Iranian territorial waters”, said one officer.
As the crisis entered another week, anger spilled over onto the streets of the Iranian capital Tehran. It was directed at the British embassy. Hundreds of protestors tried to storm the barriers outside demanding that the captured sailors and marines be put on trial.
