London: Britain's Foreign Office says that a racing yacht carrying five UK nationals has been stopped by Iranian naval vessels, and they are now in Iran.

Government officials said Monday that the yacht may have strayed inadvertently into Iranian waters when it was stopped last Wednesday.

The British government says the yacht with a crew of five is owned by Sail Bahrain.
