Harpreet Singh, a 25-year-old sailor who worked as a helmsman on the MV Amina, poses for a picture at his home in Navi Mumbai January 25, 2013. The eight Indian crew members on board the MV Amina had no inkling they were trapped on the frontline of the West’s economic war against Iran. All experienced seamen, they joined the Iranian-flagged cargo ship last year. Within months, they were caught up in a fight to prevent the ship fleeing to international waters to escape port arrest in Sri Lanka. Picture taken January 25, 2013.
