An Iranian news agency published a new picture Tuesday of a group of British sailors and marines being held captive in Iran, showing the personnel smiling and wearing tracksuits, the British Broadcasting Corp. reported. The caption to the picture says: "British sailors are chatting and eating fruit, drinking coffee and playing chess. It seems that the sailors are satisfied with their situation, in which they are enjoying good conditions instead of working in a hard situation in the Persian Gulf." Six of the crew were visible in the new still image, published hours after British Prime Minister Tony Blair told reporters the next 48 hours would be critical to quickly resolving the standoff with Teheran.
