• US Senate calls on Iran to release Americans


    WASHINGTON, DC: The US Senate overwhelmingly passed a resolution Monday calling for Iran to release three American citizens being held in the country. The non-binding measure, which passed 90 votes to zero, urges the White House to use all tools available to seek and obtain the return of the detained Americans, who include pastor Saeed Abedini, Washington Post journalist Jason Rezaian and former US Marine Amir Hekmati. A fourth American, retired FBI agent Robert Levinson, remains missing after mysteriously vanishing in Iran some eight years ago.
