Eight British servicemen taken captive by Iran were "forcibly escorted into Iranian territorial waters", the Ministry of Defence has said.
Defence Secretary Geoff Hoon said the six Royal Marines and two Royal Navy sailors maintained they had been operating in Iraqi territorial waters.
The servicemen were held for three days sparking a stand-off with Britain.
Mr Hoon added: "We are very concerned about the blindfolding of the men and have made representations to ... Iran."
