UNITED NATIONS, Aug 7 (Reuters) - Iran's foreign minister on Tuesday asked U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon for his help in efforts to free
dozens of Iranian pilgrims and aid workers captured recently in Syria and Libya.
"I would like to seek the cooperation and the good offices of Your Excellency for securing the release of these hostages," Ali Akbar Salehi wrote to
Ban in a letter that Iran's U.N. mission provided to Reuters.
"The kind cooperation of the relevant United Nations offices in responding to this request of (Iran's) Government and the families of the hostages
will be highly appreciated," Salehi said.
I think they should be held for 444 days.
Did Americans take these hostages? Besides our sanctions have held Iran hostage for longer than 444 days.
