Ten Iranian Jews holding Israeli citizenship were released on bail after being detained by the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service for several days. The 10 men, together with an unknown number of other Iranian Jews and hundreds of Muslims, were arrested under the USA Patriot Act, which mandates the registration of boys and men from five Muslim countries who are in the United States on temporary visas.
