TEHRAN - Two US men who have been held as spies in Iran for more than two years have not yet been released, their lawyer said, but he remained hopeful they would be let out later on Wednesday.

"Maybe five minutes, maybe three hours. I have done my job," Masoud Shafie said when asked when he expected Shane Bauer and Josh Fattal to be released. He said he had not seen his clients but that paper work was under way.
