I have a slight bad feeling about it

Here is the news article; ' a gift to Britain'

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says 15 British naval personnel captured in the Gulf will be freed.

He repeated allegations that the British sailors and marines "invaded" Iranian waters, but said they would be freed as a "gift" to Britain.

He made the announcement at a news conference, in which he also awarded medals to the commanders who captured the British personnel in the Gulf.

He said the Britons would be released immediately and taken to an airport.

Britain says the 15 were in Iraqi waters under a UN mandate when they were captured nearly two weeks ago.

"Unfortunately the British government was not even brave enough to tell their people the truth, that it made a mistake," Mr Ahmadinejad said.


any thoughts??

Didn't British officials meet with the Iranians earlier this week?

Obviously something beneficial is coming to Iran.
