Five British sailors from The Team Pindar vessel are being held hostage by Iran. The story is, their racing yacht may have strayed into hostile Iranian waters. Two of the crew members names have been released at this time: allegedly held are Dave Bloomer and Oil Smith.
Bahrain - Iran - Dubai
Iran announced ten new nuclear enrichment facilities to be built in the near future. The country is also holding three young Americans in the terrifying Evin Prison in Tehran. The three supposedly strayed across a border separating Iraq and Iran last summer. Now we have five Brits held hostage, bringing back memories of the March 2007 Royal Marines who were captured and held by Iran for twelve days - again for straying into Iranian waters. Since the Kingdom of Bahrain is owned by Muslims, perhaps this British crew will have a bit more luck than the Americans.
