Still held

The Iranian "hostages" are back in the news again:

The US is to continue holding five Iranians captured in Iraq despite protests from Tehran, US media said.

The fate of the five sparked disagreement, with the White House overruling the State Department on the issue, the Washington Post reported.

Administration officials have not commented on the report.

The US says the men seized in a January raid on Iran's consulate in Irbil are linked to the Revolutionary Guard. Iran says they are diplomats.
Wait a minute. That's not the right set of hostages. I get so confused sometimes, especially when I step away for a bit.
