British Soldiers released from Iran

Today Iran announced (in a surprise to the media and British government) that it was pardoning and releasing 15 British soldiers. President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad held a press briefing in which he was giving awards to the Iranian Republican guards who captured the Britons.
