The BBC says:

Tory leader David Cameron has said Defence Secretary Des Browne may have to resign unless he can show the armed forces have confidence in him.

He told the BBC Mr Browne had to give a "full account" of why sailors held by Iran were able to sell their stories.

The defence secretary is due to report to the Commons on Monday.

The Lib Dems said Mr Browne had made a "terrible mistake", but Home Secretary John Reid called him "courageous to say we got this thing wrong".

Sanctimonious gits, the Tories and the Lib Dems. This is a complete non-story and the fact that the chattering classes want to spend so much time chattering about it tells you more about the chattering classes than anything else.
