Trespass on Iranian waters causes havoc

By Jennie Wander

The second Royal Navy crew member apologized on Iranian television for trespassing on Iranian waters, BBC said.

Navy crew member Nathan Summers apologized to Iran over a televised broadcast, BBC said. Tony Blair disagreed with the broadcast saying they should stop "parading" the crew in this way, BBC said.

The European Union called for immediate release of the soldiers in a meeting in Germany Friday. The UK still denies that the crew was in Iranian waters, BBC said.

The waterway where the crew was arrested is highly controversial since Iraq and Iran both claim the territory as theirs, CNN said.
