TEHRAN, Iran — The mothers of three jailed Americans brought appeals for their freedom to Iran on Wednesday.

"We are here to visit our children that we haven't seen for 10 months. We miss them very much," said Nora Shourd in a trembling voice before bursting into tears.

Iran has accused the three Americans — Sarah Shourd, 31; her boyfriend, Shane Bauer, 27; and their friend Josh Fattal, 27 — of spying. Their relatives reject the accusation and say the three were hiking in Iraq's scenic and largely peaceful northern Kurdish region.
