Iran has released the 10 Navy sailors detained yesterday after their two boats drifted into Iranian waters.
In a statement, the Pentagon said all 10 sailors were safely returned and that there are no indications they were harmed while in Iranian custody.
U.S. officials say two U.S. Navy vessels inadvertently drifted into Iranian territory in the Persian Gulf after developing "mechanical problems."
