TEHRAN - Two US men convicted of spying in Iran are still awaiting the return of a judge from vacation to sign their release documents, their lawyer told Reuters on Tuesday.

The lawyer said on Sunday their release could be delayed until Tuesday as the judge in the case was on vacation."The judge was supposed to return today ... When I went to the court, I was told that the judge had not returned to the office yet," said Masoud Shafie.

"The judiciary officials told me to wait for their call ... but I do not think they will call any time soon."
