“Released sailors tell of ordeal”

A BBC report, “Released sailors tell of ordeal”, talks about the ordeal of the fifteen UK sailors held captive by the Iranian Navy:

Royal Navy personnel seized by Iran were blindfolded, bound and held in isolation during their 13 days in captivity, the crew have said.

The sailors were blindfolded and then led to believe they were going to be executed. They even heard weapons cocked as they stood blindfolded with their hands tied behind their backs.

Can you believe that those sailors felt they needed to explain why they were captured. They owe no explanation as far as I am concerned. They did what they were supposed to do under the circumstances. so hold your heads up high guys and gal. You did good!

Thank God you have all been returned home safely.

You can read the entire details of the UK sailors at the link above.
