The Foreign Affairs Committee in the US House of Representatives is demanding that Iran release 15 British soldiers captured last week in contested Persian Gulf waters. "The government of Iran has once again ignored international law by seizing sailors in waters outside their jurisdiction," Republican Rep. Mark Kirk, co-chairman of the House's Iran Working Group, said Tuesday. The committee approved a resolution Tuesday that Kirk introduced with his co-chairman, Democratic Rep. Robert Andrews. Iran's Foreign Ministry has insisted the Britons were operating in Iranian waters, while Britain insists they were in Iraqi waters when they finished a routine search of a civilian vessel.
