Pentagon releases new details on how U.S. sailors were taken captive by Iran

The U.S. military released new details on Monday about how 10 Navy sailors were taken captive briefly by the Iranian Revolutionary Guards in the Persian Gulf last week, but it remains unclear how the sailors first ended up in Iranian territorial waters before their capture.

The sailors were detained Jan. 12 off Farsi Island as they were traveling in two riverine command boats from Kuwait to Bahrain, U.S. military officials said. The island is home to a closely guarded Iranian military base. The sailors were released the following morning.
