Iran will free a detained British servicewoman on Wednesday or Thursday, the Iranian foreign minister told the Associated Press. She is one of the 15 British sailors and marines detained last Friday by Iran.
The British Foreign Secretary Margaret Beckett said today Britain will freeze all ties with Iran over the incident.
Earlier today, the British military officials presented maps which they said proved that the sailors were in Iraqi waters when seized. The Iranian Navy has said that the sailors were trespassing on Iranian waters.
