Iran's Revolutionary Guards have released 10 US sailors and their patrol boats after investigations showed they had entered Iranian waters unintentionally, a statement said Wednesday.

"It was determined that the detained American Marines did not enter Iranian waters intentionally. Following their apology, they have been released to international waters in the Gulf," state television quoted a Guards statement as saying.
