In January, the U.S. captured five Iranian government officials at an Iranian consulate office in Iraq. The U.S. accuses them of spying. Then, in March, Iran captured 15 British sailors on a ship in the Persian Gulf. Iran said that the British ship was in Iranian territory. The British sailors were freed after 13 days. The president of Iran said that they were forgiven “as a gift to the British nation.” The U.S. is still holding the five Iranian officials in Iraq.
