Iran frees three detained Belgians

Iran has released three Belgians who were detained two months ago for illegally entering a prohibited area and gathering information, official media reported on Wednesday.

Iran's IRNA news agency said the Belgian citizens were released and handed over on Tuesday to the Belgian ambassador in Tehran on the orders of Tehran prosecutor Abbas Jafari Dolatabadi.

It also named the Belgians, whose detentions had not been previously reported in Iran.

In Brussels, a Belgian Foreign Ministry spokesman said he had no comment at this stage.
