WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Two American citizens who were detained in Syria have been released, the U.S. State Department said on Friday.

"We can confirm that the two American citizens who were detained in Syria for the past several days have been released. Due to privacy considerations I can't provide any further information," State Department spokesman Mark Toner told a news briefing.
