The families of three Americans apprehend in Iran say freshly released videos affirm their loved ones were on vacation and had no clandestine motives when they navigated into the country from Iraq. Josh Fattal, 27, Sarah Shourd, 31, and Shane Bauer, 27, have been restrained in Iran since the 31st of July. Their families say they entered the Islamic Republic by mistake while hiking in a scenic area of northern Iraq. The families, who have had no contact with the detainees at all, absolved videos shot of them singing and dancing before they were conquered by Iranian authorities. Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki announced last week that investigators are still questioning the three and that their fate rests within judicial authorities. Bauer, Shourd and Fattal have been visited by Swiss diplomats, who survey U.S. interests in Iran. Mottaki gave no more details on the case. But his comments advised that formal charges could still be a possibility against the Americans, although Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said in an interview that he could request the judiciary to “take a look at the case with maximum leniency.” If you would like to read more about this story, you can click here.
