Iranian diplomats detained by US troops in Iraq meet their families

Baghdad, Dec 20, IRNA - Five Iranian diplomats kept in US jails in Iraq met with their family members for four hours on Friday.

A group of Iranian diplomats and the staff of Iran's consulate were kidnapped in the city of Erbil, north of Iraq, on January 11, 2006, when US forces broke into the consulate after disarming its guards and using force to break into the consulate building.

During the meeting, families of the detained diplomats were closely informed of their health condition.

The meeting was held through coordination of the Iraqi government and the International Committee of the Red Cross.
