One of the released British sailors, Faye Turney gave the British newspaper the Sun an account of the soldier's ordeal in Iran. She told the newspaper that her captors stripped her, lied to her and suggested she might never see her child again. She told the Sun that the Iranian captors asked if "she would be willing to die for her country," IDF Radio reported on Sunday night. The article mentioned that at one point the Iranians walked into Turney's room and measured her for what she thought was going to be her coffin. In addition, Turney said that for the first five days she was made to believe that the other 14 detainees - all men - had been set free, and she was the only one left.
