Iran release US sailors

TEHRAN: Iran’s IRGC said on Wednesday it has released 10 American sailors who it had detained a day earlier, according to the Guards’ statement broadcast on state television.

Iran detained the sailors aboard two US Navy patrol boats in the Gulf on Tuesday in an incident that rattled nerves days ahead of the expected implementation of a landmark nuclear accord between Tehran and world powers.
