Racing sailors seized after straying into Iranian waters

Four Britons were among the nine crew of the Kingdom of Bahrain, a racing yacht, which was apprehended by the Iranian navy. It is thought the boat, which carried a satellite tracker, may have drifted into Iranian waters after its propeller was damaged.

The newly refitted vessel was making its way from Bahrain to Dubai for a 350-mile race to Muscat, which began last week.
