President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad asked Washington
to free eight Iranians who he said were “illegally arrested and
detained,” in an interview to be aired yesterday. “It would not be
misplaced to ask that the US Government should take a humanitarian
gesture to release the Iranians who were illegally arrested and
detained here in the United States,” Ahmadinejad said, according to
excerpts of the interview released by ABC News.
