Oman plane to Iran amid bail efforts for Americans

Iran`s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said the Americans could be released within days on a total of $ 1 million bail.



Muscat: An official with Oman`s foreign
ministry says the Gulf nation has sent a plane to Tehran amid
efforts for a bail-for-freedom deal for two Americans jailed
for spying.

Oman played a similar role in bringing a third member of
the group, Sarah Shourd, from Iran last year after payment of
USD 500,000 bail.

The Omani official gave no further details today on the
possible release of Shane Bauer and Josh Fattal, who were
detained along the Iran-Iraq border in July 2009. The Omani
official spoke on condition of anonymity because of the
sensitivities of negotiations.

Iran`s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said the Americans
could be released within days on a total of USD 1 million
bail. But Iran`s judiciary says the plan was still being
reviewed.
