( AP ) - Iran has arrested three Finnish men who allegedly strayed into its territorial waters during a fishing trip in the Persian Gulf, Finnish government officials said Wednesday.
The three men, employed by Nokia Siemens Networks, were seized Saturday near the island of Abu Musa off Dubai and were being held for questioning.
"We have been in contact with Iranian authorities. They said the three men are fine and are being cared for," Foreign ministry councilor Pasi Tuominen said.
No other details were immediately available.
Iranian revolutionary guards detained 15 British sailors and marines after seizing their ship on March 23 in what Tehran claimed was Iranian waters in the Persian Gulf. Britain insisted the crew was in Iraqi waters at the time. The 15 were released after nearly two weeks in captivity.
