An Iranian court has sentenced American hikers Shane Bauer and Joshua Fatta to eight years in prison for illegally crossing the Iraq-Iran border and committing espionage.
Three American hikers jailed in Iran for 10 months were allowed to see their mothers.
Shane Bauer, Sarah Shourd, and Josh Fattal were briefly let out of Evin prison to visit their mothers in a Tehran hotel. The mothers want to bring their children home, but Iran may be waiting for a prisoner swap with the US.
The mothers of three US hikers detained in Iran the past ten months on spying charges held an emotional reunion with their children on Thursday.
