Iran tanker standoff: Tehran releases nine crew of Mt Riah vessel

At least this is a positive in a tense situation. 
But, tensions are still high and may come to a head sooner or later.
The Guardian reports Iran has freed nine of 12 Indian crew members of MT Riah, a Panama-flagged tanker it seized this month as part of a growing diplomatic crisis in the Middle East, the Indian foreign ministry said on Saturday.

The MT Riah was detained by the Iranian coastguard on 13 July, with 12 Indian crew members on board, the Indian foreign ministry said, and appealed for the release of the remaining crew. No reason has been provided as to why the three are being held.
