War Of Words With Iran Escalates Over UK Navy Personnel

Tony Blair today called the detention of 15 Royal Navy service personnel ''unjustified and wrong'' as the government in Tehran shows no signs of backing down.

Speaking at the European Union Summit to mark the fifty year anniversary of the creation of the EU, Prime Minister Blair said it was false that the marine forces had been captured in Iranian waters, they were in Iraqi territorial waters.

The Prime Minister added that he hopes the Iranian government can understand how fundemental this is for the UK Navy.

The Truthiness Blog Says ; No complicated 'spin', no revisionist talk, Mr Blair says they were in Iraq waters, Tehran says no.

Who's going to blink first?
