UK sailors spill all after being released

By Jennie Wander

The officers of the 15 British military personnel captured by Iranian forces claim the sailors were subjected to "psychological pressure," CNN said.

At a news conference in southwestern England, Lt. Felix Carman of the British Royal Navy said the soldiers and sailors were not trespassing on Iranian waters, CNN said. Iranian forces, however, claim the conference was a set up to cover a mistake, CNN said.

Lt. Carman said the soldiers were kept in isolation and interrogated, among other things, CNN said.

Several of the crew members have since been on Iranian television apologizing for crossing into Iran's waters, CNN said.
