4 Kuwaitis Detained in Iran Released

Authorities in Kuwait said four Kuwaitis detained in Iran were handed over to the emirate's embassy in Tehran. The state-run Kuwait News Agency on Monday quoted Khaled Al-Jarallah, the oil-rich country's deputy minister of foreign affairs, as saying Iranian authorities were "positively cooperative", AP reported. Officials said they were to return to Kuwait on Tuesday. Kuwaiti newspaper Al Rai reported that the four were on a fishing trip when they strayed into Iranian waters and were detained on Friday. Iranian media quoted Kuwaiti reports about the release, without elaborating. Kuwait recalled its ambassador to Iran in January following attacks by protesters on two Saudi diplomatic posts in the Islamic Republic, though its embassy continues to operate. Those attacks came after Saudi Arabia executed top Shia cleric Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr without observing due process of law.
