    Stuck on one in this if anyone can help, thanks.

    50 across: Their aquatic contents may be found in the Middle east. i-a- (4)

    It might be Iran or Iraq but I can't see the logic behind it.

    IRAQ - Last 2 letters of 'Their' & first 2 letters of 'aquatic', 'contents' indicates its included in the clue

    Thanks for that, I was looking too deeply into the clue, sometimes it's staring at you right in the face.

    Always a fantastic cryptic xword.
