Iran's Revolutionary Guards have released 10 US sailors held for entering its territorial waters in the Gulf, state television reported. They were detained on Tuesday after one of their two vessels broke down during a training mission, the US says.
A statement read on state media said the group was released into international waters after apologizing.
It comes at a sensitive time, as the US and Iran try to implement the deal on Iran's nuclear activities. A US official confirmed the sailors' release to the Reuters news agency.
