GWADAR – Iran on Saturday released at least 20 Pakistani fishermen who had been taken into custody by the country’s coastguards along with their boats last week.

The Iranian authorities handed over the fishermen to the Levies Force at the Taftan border crossing. But their boats are still in the custody of Iranian coastal guards, officials said.

Sources said that Iranian coastguards had also taken another group of fishermen into custody along with two boats. There has been no information about those fishermen so far.
