From London, both NBC and ABC followed up on the return home of the British sailors who had been taken captive by Iran's Revolutionary Guard. NBC's Jim Maceda played a soundbite from a Royal Navy captain to Sky News before the search party was arrested admitting that the ships were in the Persian Gulf to gain intelligence on "Iranian activity in the area." Now that they are safely home, ABC's Jim Sciutto heard the British government trade "its soft tone for harsh rhetoric." Prime Minister Tony Blair accused "elements" of the Teheran regime of "backing, financing, arming, supporting terrorism in Iraq."
