TEHERAN, Iran — Iran's state-run Press TV said on Thursday that three Americans jailed in Iran were meeting with their mothers.

The news channel broadcast footage of Sarah Shourd, Shane Bauer and Josh Fattal hugging and kissing their mothers, who were wearing long black headscarves and holding bouquets of flowers.The trio's mothers arrived in Teheran a day earlier to visit their children and try to secure the their release.



Shourd, Bauer and Fattal were arrested along the Iraqi border in July, and Iran has accused them of spying. Their relatives reject the accusation and say they were hiking in Iraq's scenic north.
