Miliband says Iran has detained five Britons.

Britain says five of its nationals have been detained by Iranian naval forces after their yacht may have strayed into Iranian waters.

British Foreign Secretary David Miliband said in a statement that the five crew members were detained on November 25 in the Persian Gulf.

Miliband claimed that the yacht was en route from Bahrain to Dubai when Iranian forces arrested the Britons.

He went on to say that they are understood to be safe and well, and their families have been informed.

Foreign Office officials have contacted the Iranian authorities to try to resolve the matter, he added.

“Our ambassador in Tehran has raised the issue with the Iranian Foreign Ministry, and we have discussed the matter with the Iranian Embassy in London,” Reuters quoted Miliband as saying on Monday.

Miliband also expressed hope that the issue would “soon be resolved.”
Don't expect this banana wielding coward Miliband, to do anything to endanger trade with Iran or show any form of backbone what so ever.

Apparently the evil Persians kept them in rather nice accommodation with regular meals and were really polite to them.

Whats the world coming to when the axis of evil treats its captives with a bit of respect.

Mind swapping Miliband is an idea.
