Iran: Female Marine Will Not be Released

Iranian officials announced Thursday that a female British marine who was seized last week along with 14 others will not be released in the near future. This is in contradiction to previous reports, in which officials said the woman would be released Wednesday night or Thursday.

The marine, Faye Turney, was shown recently in a video broadcast from Iran. In the video, she admits that the marines trespassed on Iranian waters and praises her Iranian captors. The circumstances of the video’s filming are unknown.
