State Dept. official confirms ID of man detained in Iran, calls for his release

Washington (CNN) — A day after Iranian TV broadcast video of what it called the confession of a U.S. spy, a State Department official confirmed the identity of the man in Iranian custody and called for his release “without delay.”

On Sunday, Iran’s semi-official Fars news agency carried a video in which a young man said his name is Amir Mirza Hekmati, and that he had joined the U.S. Marine Corps and had worked with Iraqi officers.
