The Australian government on Wednesday said three of its citizens were detained in Iran, the latest series of Western arrests by Tehran authorities.

The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade provides consular assistance to the families of the three Australians detained in Iran.

“Due to our privacy obligations, we will not comment further,” a spokeswoman told AFP.

Initially, The Time of London newspaper reported that two British-Australian-born men and a woman were detained in the Evin prison in Tehran.

Australian public broadcaster ABC said that two Australians with their girlfriend were among those arrested.

So far, it cannot be explained if all three have been charged. One of the women was reportedly detained for up to a year.

News of the arrest of the three citizens came after Australia announced that it would join a US-led mission to protect shipping lines in the Hormuz Strait.
