Iran holds yacht with 5 UK nationals

LONDON — Iran is holding five British sailors after stopping their racing yacht in the Persian Gulf, the British government said Monday.

The yacht, owned by Sail Bahrain, was stopped on its way from the tiny island country to the Gulf city of Dubai on Wednesday when it “may have strayed inadvertently into Iranian waters,” Britain’s Foreign Office said.

It said the crew members “are still in Iran” but did not specify whether they are and what their legal status is. A call seeking clarification from Britain’s Foreign Office was not immediately returned.

And that is Iran’s film review of “2012.”  If you are not familiar with the Iranian rating system, here is an explanation:

Three or fewer hostages: excellent film, two thumbs up. (For instance, the slightly edited musical “Seven Brides for One Brother.”)  

Four to seven: good film, one thumb up. (“The Virgin Suicide Bombers”)

Eight to twelve: fair, one thumb cut off. (“Edward Scimitarhands”) 
Thirteen or more:  Don’t ask. (Anything with Jews)

 And let’s not forget the historic significance of this day:
