BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) -- Three American tourists are believed to be in Iranian custody after they may have strayed across the border from Iraq during a mountain hike, Kurdish officials said Friday.
Four Americans -- two of them students in Syria -- traveled from Syria to Turkey and then into Kurdistan in northern Iraq, arriving at Irbil on Tuesday, according to Peshrow Ahmed, spokesman for the security manager of Sulaimaniya, where they arrived Thursday after driving from Irbil.
First of all please tell me why I should worry about any American student who is dumb enough to attend a school in Syria.
Secondly tell me why I should worry about any American who is dumb enough to go to Iraq as tourist much less go near the Iraq-Iran border.
Tell Iran, very loudly and sincerely that it can keep them. But, we will take them back if Iran insists and asks nicely.
