Teheran warned on Tuesday that it will take strong action against five detained British sailors if it is proven they had "bad intentions" when their racing yacht entered Iran's Persian Gulf waters and was seized. The detention could heighten tensions between Iran and major world powers, including Britain, that are demanding a halt to Teheran's controversial nuclear program. London rushed to keep the incident from getting tangled up in the two nations' disputes - wary of how political tensions have snarled attempts to free three Americans arrested by Iran this summer after they strayed across the border from Iraq, reportedly by accident during a hike. British Foreign Secretary David Miliband said "there is certainly no question of any malicious intent on the part of these five young people."
