The 10 US. Navy sailors captured by Iranian Revolutionary guards are now freed by their captors. They were detained by Iranian forces after they encroached into Iranian water with their boats. The Republican news reported the incident earlier.
The Iranian officials interrogated the sailors about their motives before they were released. The sailors are now in USS Ansio , a United States military aircraft carrier ship. They sailors are now undergoing medical check ups on board the aircraft carrier.
While the Iranians deemed the incident as accidental, they are however demanding an apology from United States government.
“The evidence suggests that they unintentionally entered the Iranian waters because of the failure of their navigational system,” IRGC spokesman Ramazan Sharif said on PressTV.
