Iran Charges Detained US Hikers With Espionage

Once again, Iran is finding ways to tweak President Obama. His regime has charged three hikers who claim that they accidentally crossed into Iran with espionage.
Iran has charged three detained U.S. citizens with espionage, the official IRNA news agency quoted a
judiciary official as saying on Monday.

"The three are charged with espionage. Investigations continue into the three detained Americans in Iran," Tehran general prosecutor Abbas Jafari Dolatabadi said.

The three were held after they strayed into Iran from northern Iraq at the end of July.

The three, Shane Bauer, 27, Sarah Shourd, 31, and Josh Fattal, 27, crossed into Iranian territory nearly two months ago. Their families say they strayed across the border accidentally.
These aren't the only Americans being detained by the Iranian regime. The Alaei brothers remain in Iranian prison after a kangaroo court convicted them of trying to overthrow the government.
