Iran says may take serious action against Britons
TEHRAN (Reuters) - Iran will take "serious" measures against detained five Britons in the Gulf if proved they had "evil intentions" to enter the Islamic state's territorial waters, a close aide to President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Tuesday, a news agency reported.
"Judiciary will decide about the five ... naturally our measures will be hard and serious if we find out they had evil intentions," Esfandiar Rahim-Mashaie, the president's head of staff, told the semi-official Fars news agency.
