Britain's military said Wednesday that British boarding vessels were 1.7 nautical miles inside Iraqi territorial waters when a Royal Navy crew was seized by Iran.
Vice Admiral Charles Style told reporters that the Iranians had provided a position on Sunday, a location that he said was in Iraqi waters. By Tuesday, Iranian officials had given a revised position two miles east, placing the British inside Iranian waters, a claim he said was not verified by GPS coordinates.
"It is hard to understand a legit reason for this change of coordinates," Style said
He gave the coordinates as 29.50.36 north and 048.43.08 east.
