Egypt's foreign ministry said on Thursday it has secured the release of two Egyptian citizens who were detained by Iran for illegally entering the country’s territorial waters on an Emirati ship,

A ministry statement said the two were in good condition following their release. 

Last month the ministry said that it had secured the release of five Egyptian fishermen who had been detained by Iran in December after their fishing boat, which is registered in Saudi Arabia, reportedly drifted into Iranian territorial waters.
