    U.S. Navy rescues Iranian sailors from pirates


    A U.S. Navy ship in the northern Arabian Sea has rescued 13 Iranian sailors who had been held captive by pirates for several weeks, the Navy says in a statement.

    The statement says the guided-missile destroyer USS Kidd on Thursday came upon a pirate skiff alongside the Iranian-flagged fishing vessel, the Al Molai, at about the same time that the master of the Iranian ship sent out a distress call claiming he was being held captive by pirates.

    A team from the Kidd boarded the Al Molai and detained 15 suspected pirates who had apparently been holding the Iranian crew hostage for several weeks, the Navy says.


    CNN notes that Iranian officials, earlier this week, warned the United States over the presence of the Stennis in the area.
