Iran TV calls sailors' press conference a 'show' dictated by British military

Iran's state television said the British military "dictated" to its sailors what to say in a press conference Friday, in which they said they were pressured while in custody to admit to being in Iranian waters.

 

In its news report on the sailors, Iranian state TV said they held a "pre-organized" press conference in which "the British sailors only read from pages dictated to them." "They made statements completely different from what they had said in Iran and claimed that they were in Iraqi waters when detained," the TV newsreader said. (AP)
