The British Captives of Iran Have Been Freed

The fifteen British sailors and marines that Iran captured thirteen days ago have been set free and have returned home to the U.K.

Iran President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said that he “pardoned” the Royal Navy crew as a “gift to the British people” in honor of the birthday of the Prophet Muhammad (March 30) and the Easter holiday. The former captives were shown on Iranian television thanking Ahmadinejad for his kindness and forgiveness.
