The commander in charge of 10 U.S. sailors who were detained in Iran earlier this year has been publicly disciplined.
Cmdr. Eric Rasch was relieved of his duties after U.S. Navy officials say he "failed to provide effective leadership."
This announcement comes months after two riverine boats drifted into Iranian water due to a navigational error. The sailors were detained for about 15 hours before being released.
