World Today

We made a “mistake”. Those words coming from one of 10 U.S. Navy sailors held and then freed by Iran.

The American Navy crew was held by Iran’s Revolutionary Guard after they drifted into Iranian territorial waters in the Persian Gulf.

A video apology was released by Iranian state media after the U.S. initially said an apology didn’t exist. Despite the war of words, a peaceful resolution was made and it was made promptly.

CCTV’s Jim Spellman reports from Washington.
