Second meeting for jailed Americans with their mothers
Witnesses at a Tehran hotel say three Americans jailed in Iran for 10 months have met with their mothers again — the second such meeting arranged by authorities since the mothers' arrival in the country earlier this week.
The meeting on Friday was more private than the widely broadcast emotional first reunion on Thursday.
No cameras or media were allowed this time into the high-rise Esteghlal Hotel that overlooks the Evin Prison, where the trio have been held since their detention last July, according to MSNBC.
Iran has accused Sarah Shourd, 31; her boyfriend, Shane Bauer, 27; and their friend Josh Fattal, 27, of spying. Relatives say the three were simply hiking in Iraq's scenic and largely peaceful mountainous northern Kurdish region.
