US Secretary of Defense Robert Gates said that the United States was not planning to release the five Iranians arrested in January in a raid on the Iranian consulate's office in the northern Iraqi city of Arbil.

U.S. Helped Free Iranian Diplomat:

The Iranian diplomat released Tuesday preceding the announcement that Iran would free the 15 British sailors it had taken hostage was being held in a joint Iraqi and American facility, and was released in part because of a decision at the highest levels of the American government.

'We Gathered Intelligence:

Sky News went on patrol with Captain Chris Air and his team in Iraqi waters close to the area where they were arrested - just five days before the crisis began. We withheld the interview until now so it would not jeopardise their safety.
