Letter released by Iran from British woman captive

LONDON (Reuters) - The Iranian embassy in London released a second letter on Thursday it said was from British woman captive Faye Turney in which she called on Britain to start withdrawing its troops from Iraq.

Following is a full text of the letter:

“Representative of the House of Commons.

“I am writing to inform you of my situation. I am a British Serviceperson currently being held in Iran.

“I would like you to know of the treatment I have received whilst here. The Iranian people are kind, considerate, warm, compassionate and very hospitable. They have brought me no harm, but have looked after me well. I have been fed, clothed and well cared for.

“Unfortunately during the course of our mission we entered into Iranian waters. Even through our wrongdoing, they have still treated us well and humanely, which I am and always will be eternally grateful.

“I ask the representatives of the House of Commons after the government had promised that this type of incident would not happen again why have they let this occur and why has the government not been questioned over this? Isn’t it time for us to start withdrawing our forces from Iraq and let them determine their own future?”
