Iran has no plans to swap three American prisoners for a missing nuclear scientist who Tehran claims was abducted by the US, an Iranian official said Tuesday.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast said it's not Iran's practice to "exchange people whose cases are still with the judiciary" and dismissed suggestions that the fate of the three Americans is linked to that of scientist Shahram Amiri.
