A young British mother of one is among the British sailors and marines who have been held by Iran since Friday.
Sky News reports:

The Prime Minister and Foreign Secretary are piling pressure on Iran to release 15 Royal Navy sailors and Royal Marines captured in the Gulf.

Tony Blair said he was “utterly confident” those in custody had done nothing wrong while Margaret Beckett demanded their safe return in “very robust” terms.
The captives seized on Friday include married mother-of-one Faye Turney, 26, and 21-year-old Paul Barton from Merseyside.

All 15 British personnel were detained at gun-point after they boarded a dhow carrying suspicious cargo off the coast of Iraq.

Faye says, ““I really do love my job — but I love my daughter also.”

The Iranian regime yesterday said this about Faye Turney (IRINN):

Foreign Ministry spokesman has said that media furore will not help the speedy release of the British marines and that the case has to go through its normal procedure. Coastguards arrested 15 British sailors and marines for illegally entering Iranian waters on 3 Farvardin [23 March]. Mohammad Ali Hoseyni said they [British sailors] are in sterling health and added that they are being treated in a humane and ethical way. He said that Faye Turney, the 26 year old female sailor, has been accommodated separately for her own convenience(?)

That does not sound very convenient- to be split off from your unit.

Great Britain is set to release evidence that the British ship was in Iraqi waters.

UPDATE 1: Britain releases proof that sailors and marines were operating within Iraqi waters!
BBC reports:

The Royal Navy says satellite data proves 15 personnel being held in Iran were 1.7 nautical miles inside Iraqi waters when they were seized. Vice Admiral Charles Style said the Iranians had given two different positions for the personnel – the first inside Iraqi waters in the Gulf.

Update 2: Iran says they will release Faye Turney and that they have a video of her “confession” that they will air.
HotAir is tracking the developments.

Bazteb News says now that: ” The Islamic Republic of Iran will legally deal with the arrested British marines and the solutions to the case are diplomatically clear, if it has been a mistake, an apology by the British government will suffice, otherwise they have to explain what their objective has been in aggressing against the Iranian territorial waters.”

It looks like they want the Brits to grovel.
I’m sure they could round up a few million Leftists to say they’re sorry, pronto.
This could be over with by lunchtime!
