Qatar Releases 16 Iranian Sailors

“Sixteen Iranian sailors and their boats, detained for illegal entry to Qatari waters by coast guards in March, have been released through efforts made by Iran's Embassy in Doha,” said Abdollah Sohrabi, Mehr news agency reported.

The Iranian ambassador added that a Qatari court ordered the release of the sailors after “the detainees were cleared from the charges.”

“The Iranian sailors left Doha on Thursday, along with their fishing boats, and joined their families in Rostami port in Bushehr province,” Sohrabi went on to say.

Qatar, which shares sea borders with Iran in the Persian Gulf, confiscated two Iranian fishing boats and their crews on March 24.
