TEHERAN, Iran — An Iranian newspaper reported that a delegation from nearby Oman will visit Iran Sunday to pursue the release of two American men imprisoned for more than a year.

The Gulf sultanate of Oman played a key role in securing the Sept. 14 release of a third American, Sarah Shourd, who was arrested with the two men still held — Shane Bauer and Josh Fattal.

The hard-line daily Jomhuri-e-Eslami, which is not state-run but close to the ruling establishment, reported that if the Americans are released, they will be able to leave with the visiting delegation for the Omani capital Muscat.
