Iran has released new photographs in which at least one of the recently captured U.S. sailors is crying, according to a series of the pictures posted on social media.

The pictures, as well as an accompanying video, were released by Iranian state-controlled news outlets and disseminated on Twitter by Iranian reporters early Wednesday.

The new photographs come on the heels of another set of pictures that showed Iranian military forces detaining the U.S. sailors at gun point and forcing them to place their hands upon their heads while kneeling on a ship.

Iran captured the 10 U.S. sailors earlier this year after they drifted into Iranian territorial waters.

The U.S. military disclosed after the incident that the sailors were held at gunpoint and that Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps removed SIM cards and other technology from them.

The Obama administration, including Secretary of State John Kerry, has praised and thanked Iran for the way it treated the captured sailors, who were released by Iranian authorities the following morning.
