U.S. Navy Rescues Iranian Hostages

The U.S. Navy has rescued 13 Iranians who were being held hostage by pirates, the Pentagon said Friday. While details are scarce, the news comes only one day after Iran warned the U.S. to keep its operations out of the Persian Gulf—a warning that included this rescue mission. Fifteen suspected pirates have been captured and are being held by the Navy.
