Iran's state television quoted an unnamed Iranian official on Wednesday as saying the first, technical phase of an investigation into the detentions of 15 British sailors was complete and determined the sailors were "definitely" in Iranian waters when seized. The unnamed official also was quoted as saying that some of the detained British sailors had "confirmed they were in Iranian territorial waters and expressed regret over it." One Iranian official said immediately after the detentions last week that all the British had confessed to being in Iranian waters, but Iran had not until now repeated that assertion. "This case is completely provable," the unnamed official was quoted as saying, "and British officials were also infomred about it."
