U.S. Warns: Americans who travel to Iran risk arrest


U.S. citizens traveling to Iran, especially Iranian-Americans, are at a high risk of being arrested and detained in that country, the U.S. State Department warned Friday.

The official warning by the U.S. State Department seeks to “reiterate and highlight the risk of arrest and detention of U.S. citizens, particularly dual national Iranian-Americans, in Iran.”

According to the notice, “U.S. citizens, in particular dual nationals Iranians” have been subjected to harassment, arrest, and detention since the nuclear deal was signed in July.

The warning was issued just days after five Americans, including four dual Iranian nationals, were released by Iran in a prisoner swap.
