New punitive measures will be applied against Iran if the nation’s leaders do not send home all US nationals, reports the Sputnik. “For nearly 40 years, Iran has used detentions and hostage taking as a tool of state policy, a practice that continues to this day to with the recent sentencing of Xiyue Wang to ten years in prison,” the White House said in a statement.
