Five Britons kidnapped in Iraq -including Peter Moore who was freed on Wednesday after two-and-a-half years - were held in Iran, it has been claimed.

Mr Moore and his four bodyguards were taken to a camp in Iran within a day of being seized, says the Guardian paper.Three of the bodyguards were killed; the fourth is also thought to be dead.

However one Iraqi MP whom the Guardian said had been a key negotiator in the crisis has strongly denied Iran had any involvement in the hostage-taking.

The BBC's Jim Muir, in Baghdad, said there were many versions of what had happened."It's an extremely murky business, we may never know the truth," he said.
