Iran says 3 Americans should stand trial

The 3 should stand trial on charges of illegally crossing borders, says Iran.



Tehran: Iran`s Foreign Ministry says the three Americans jailed a year ago should stand trial on charges of illegally crossing the country`s borders.

State media quoted ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast as saying their "violation is obvious" and they should be held accountable.

He said Iran is also considering other possible charges against Shane Bauer, Sarah Shourd and Josh Fattal including intentionally acting against Iranian security. No charges have been filed yet.
The Americans` families and the US government say the three are innocent and accidentally crossed Iran`s border while hiking in northern Iraq.
