hikers iranian prison No Prisoner Swap For Hikers

A foreign ministry spokesman says Tehran has no plans to swap three Americans jailed in Iran on spying charges for Iranians held in the Unites States. He says it’s not Iran’s practice to “exchange people whose cases are still with the judiciary.”

 The three Americans – including Shane Bauer of Minnesota – were arrested while hiking along the Iraqi border last July. Iran allowed the mothers of the three to visit them in May.
