US-Iran tensions

There appears to be a de-escalation of at least some of the tension between the United States and Iran.

U.S. President Donald Trump and other administration officials said there are currently no signs of threatening actions by Tehran. The administration has been on high alert in response to what officials called specific and credible threats from Iran against U.S. personnel in the Middle East.
