Iranian ambassador: No deal on US hikers


BAGHDAD— The Iranian ambassador in Baghdad said the recent release of two Iranians from Iraqi custody is not an indication of any impeding deal to free three Americans held by Tehran on spying charges.
Ambassador Hassan Kazemi Qomi told The Associated Press the fate of the Americans, who have been held since July, is in the hands of the Iranian judiciary and has no connection to the release of two Iranians earlier this month.
"There were no deals," Qomi said. "They (Americans) are in the custody of the judiciary system."
