Three U.S. hikers who crossed into Iran from Iraq were involved in a spy operation, Iranian intelligence officials said.
Joshua Felix Fattal, 27, Shane Michael Bauer, 27, and Sarah Emily Shourd, 31, have been held in an Iranian prison since their arrest July 31 in the western Iranian district of Marivan.
They were charged with espionage, Iranian Intelligence Minister Heydar Moslehi said.
“It is clear that the three Americans are spies,” Moslehi told reporters Sunday adding there have been no talks of a prisoner swap, as of yet.
