Iranian state television is reporting that all 10 U.S. sailors detained by Iran after entering its territorial waters have been released.
Iran's Revolutionary Guard said the sailors were released Wednesday after it was determined that their entry was not intentional.
The nine men and one woman were being held at an Iranian base on Farsi Island in the Persian Gulf after being detained nearby on Tuesday.
The U.S. Navy's Bahrain-based 5th Fleet had no immediate comment or confirmation of the release.
