(NEWSER) – Iran's state television has released a new propaganda video that includes images of a US sailor crying while in Iran's custody—and the US Navy is not happy. "We are disgusted by the exploitation of our sailors in Iranian propaganda," says Cmdr. Kevin Stephens, spokesperson for Naval Forces Central Command, per the Navy Times.
The crying sailor and other images in the video (including a shot of the soldiers kneeling with their hands behind their heads, per ABC News) were taken while Iran briefly held 10 US sailors in January after they accidentally strayed into Iranian waters. "The detention of our personnel was outrageous and unacceptable," Stephens' statement continues.
