The mothers of three American hikers detained in Iran are asking Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to personally return their children.

Ahmadinejad has applied for a US visa to attend a nuclear conference at the United Nations next week, and the mothers of Shane Bauer, Sarah Shourd and Josh Fattal sent him a letter this week, asking him to bring their children to New York.They say it "would be a most noble act of mercy and compassion."

The three have been held since crossing the border from Iraq in July. Their families say they unintentionally strayed while hiking, while Iranian officials have suggested the three might have links to US intelligence.
