Iran's Arabic-language satellite television channel said Sunday it planned to air "confessions" from two of the 15 British sailors captured by Iran 10 days ago. Al-Alam TV said it would broadcast excerpts of what it said were "confessions." It did not say specifically when it would be aired or name which sailors would appear. The British sailors and marines were detained by Iranian naval units March 23 while patrolling for smugglers as part of a UN-mandated force patrolling the Persian Gulf. Iran insists the sailors had trespassed into its waters, but Britain says the team was in Iraqi waters.
