Rep. Adam Kinzinger said Tuesday that Iran's seizure of 10 American sailors was most likely a "hostile" action.

"If they strayed into Iranian territory, that's one thing," the Illinois Republican told Wolf Blitzer on CNN. "I have a hard time understanding how two small boats could stray into, frankly, a really small island in the Persian Gulf.

"When you hear that the Iranians say they were arrested, when you hear they can't let them go in the dark — which is interesting to me — I think this is a serious situation," Kinzinger said. "We hope they get returned safely and shortly."

Kinzinger, an Air Force veteran who served in both Iraq an Afghanistan, added: "It's something we're very concerned about.

"But at the end of the day, hopefully, these sailors are returned safely — and then we can figure out what happened," he said. "If, in fact, Iran acted hostilely, they ought to be punished."
