7 Iranian Fishermen Released by Riyadh

Iranian state TV said on Thursday seven Iranian fishermen detained by Saudi Arabia’s coastguard over a year ago had been returned to the country amid heightened tension between the regional rivals. “Seven Iranian fishermen who were arrested by Saudi Arabia’ border security guards over a year ago have been returned to the country,” state television reported without elaborating, as cited by Reuters. Saudi Arabia is fomenting tension in the Middle East, where Tehran and Riyadh back opposite sides in conflicts in Syria, Yemen and Iraq. Relations between the two are at their most tense in years. Saudi Arabia, along with other Arab governments, has severed ties with Qatar, citing its support of Iran as one of the main reasons for the move. Iran has blamed Saudi Arabia for being behind deadly twin attacks on June 7 in Tehran, which was claimed by the self-styled Islamic State terrorist group.
