Members of the British naval crew seized by Iran were detained in solitary confinement, Britain's defense ministry confirmed Thursday. Lt. Col. Andy Price said some of the naval personnel had been "left alone" at points during their captivity, but said he would not elaborate until officials had held further talks with the sailors. It followed a claim from the family of one of the crew that a sailor had been kept in solitary detention while the 15 personnel were held.
