Iran's state-run television has aired additional footage showing the captured British navy crew who were freed last week. The sailors there are seen relaxing, chatting and playing games.
The sailors themselves say they underwent constant psychological pressure during their 13 days of detention. The report claims the new video proves that the sailors had complete liberty during their detention, which Iran says contradicts what the sailors declared after they arrived in Britain.This latest video release comes as Tehran's response to the claims of the British crew who said they were blindfolded, isolated in cold stone cells and feared execution while being coerced into saying they had falsely entered Iranian waters.
