2 foreign newsmen held in Iran in spy inquiry

Two foreign journalists being held for questioning about alleged espionage were transferred to jail Saturday night. Tony Allaway of Britain and Ralph Joseph of Pakistan were arrested Aug. 14 by unidentified authorities and neither their families nor diplomats have been allowed access.

Both journalists are married to Iranians and run news translation services of Iranian press reports, which are distributed mainly to embassies and the dwindling foreign press corps. Mr. Allaway was correspondent of The Times of London and formerly of The Christian Science Monitor.
