Even more mysterious update #2:

  • IRANIAN CENTRAL TV CONFIRMS THAT EIGHT UK EMBASSY STAFF TAKEN HOSTAGE

Mysterious update confirming that something very fishy is going on here:

  • IRAN'S MEHR NEWS AGENCY REMOVES REPORT OF HOSTAGE TAKING FROM ITS WEBSITE - NO EXPLANATION GIVEN

Today's developments are rapidly turning into a repeat of Iran-Contra:

  • SIX UK EMBASSY STAFF TAKEN HOSTAGE BY PROTESTERS IN NORTHERN COMPOUND OF TEHRAN EMBASSY - MEHR NEWS AGENCY

Expect a very formal, and very forceful UK response imminently.

Once again - got Brent?
