STORY: IRAN WARSHIPS CROSS SUEZ CANAL DATELINE: March 3, 2011 LENGTH: 0:00:33 LOCATION: Sinai, Egypt VO Two Iranian warships that crossed the Suez Canal last month en route to Syria, have made the return trip through the Egyptian Canal. The Alvand, a frigate, and the supply ship Kharg arrived at Egypt's Port Said Thursday morning. They crossed the Suez Canal on Feb. 22, four days after Egypt approved their requests to travel through the waterway. The two warships then headed to a Syrian port through the Mediterranean. It's the first time for Iranian naval ships to sail through the Suez since Iran's 1979 Islamic Revolution. Israel has voiced concerns over the transit plan, saying it's a "provocation".
